Not to nitpick but your C code could use some work. First off, some
indentation please? Second, returning a unsigned long long as "int"
is not very portable.

Part of the good thing of PRNGs is that they're reproduceable.
Ideally over different platforms. You should truncate the return
value if you want it as "int" or change the return type. As it stands
now this will produce different results on my x86-32 and 64 boxes for
the same seed, which is a bad thing.
