[PD] Random

Each new instance of [random] already seeds itself differently, so adding $0 isn't going to change anything there. The problem is that the seeds are repeated when you restart PD, so you'll get the same pseudo-random results every time you open the program. $0 won't help here, because the $0 values also repeat when you restart PD.

Yes, but it will provide a different seed to [random] inside every
abstraction. Forgive me if I understand your intentions in the wrong
