None Mersenne Twister

Out of curiosity. Why is the Mersenne Twister algorithm not a choice for pseudorandom generator? Or is it and i don't find it. It seems far superior to the LCG based codes that are used. I also find different numbers for what the period of ranecu is (does not say in manual)

Also, How big of a problem is it if I just seed ranecu with not-so-smart start seeds (I need to automate the seeding so that a certain geometry always recieves a certain seed. So I thought of just sticking in the seeds as some ad-hoc function of the geometry)

thanks.
