* ISTM that the impact of the chosen 1000 should appear somewhere.
I don't have a problem with that, but I didn't see that the little table you
included was enough to do that. I think if someone knows how this type of
random generation works, they don't need the comment to analyze the impact.
And if they don't know, that comment alone wasn't enough to help them figure
it out. That's why I added some terms that might help point the right way
for someone who wanted to search for more information instead.
Sure. I agree that comments are not the right place for a lecture about
Poisson stochastic processes. Only the "1000" parameter as an impact on
the maximum delay that can be incurred with respect do the target average
delay, and I think that this information is relevant for a comment.
to generate numbers with a target probability distribution function.
Normally the code comments tries to recommend references for this sort
of thing instead. I didn't find a really good one in a quick search
though.
Yep. Maybe "http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Exponential_distribution".
