I would have thought this is already linked in as part of the RTL.
Simply not initialized until the first Randomize() call.

Ok, valid point.  Even so, I still think many people use Randomize()
and Random() incorrectly which causes more harm (unexpected results)
compared to *maybe* having to set a different randseed and calling
randomize() twice.
