MT speed compared to rand()

The implementation of Rand() differs for different compiler libraries. Some are eqtremely fast but not very random. Mersenne twister is pretty fast, maybe 20 nanoseconds. I'm sure that's fast enough for most applications. The assembly version in asmlib is faster than the C++ version.
