Monte-Carlo method support

Monte-Carlo methods transform an input random number stream
(usually having a continuous uniform distribution in the
interval [0, 1)) into a random number stream whose distribution
satisfies certain conditions (usually the expectation value
is equal to some desired quantity). They are thus
transformations from one probability distribution to another one.

This library represents a Monte-Carlo method by a function that
takes as input the state of a random number stream with
uniform distribution (see
clojure.contrib.probabilities.random-numbers) and returns a
vector containing one sample value of the desired output
distribution and the final state of the input random number
stream. Such functions are state monad values and can be
composed using operations defined in clojure.contrib.monads.
