sharing a randart seed?

is there a way, say, like Minecraft has, where i can share my randart seed, and someone else can use it?

and if not, why not?

Not directly, but sharing the randart file has exactly the same effect.

I maintain a couple of open source projects (unrelated to Angband), which do this. I find it helps a lot when writing test suites for autoconf/automake ("make check"); and when trying to reproduce some strange behavour that a user has encountered.

I use the Mersenne Twister PRNG in my projects, but this concept should be applicable to any PRNG that can be seeded.

tl;dr: +1

as i understand it, a short while ago the option to "use the same randart set as the last game" was removed. sucks when you keep getting warriors with +2 shot rings and rangers with +2 attacks rings.

anyway, it would be cool if both i could pick what randart set to use from the seed (avoids having to store a larger file) and if i want to post it for someone else to use.

i mean, i'm still waiting for [s] to be the rest key, so it's not like i expect this to happen tomorrow, but a man can dream.
