Custom generator is used because we want GNU Go to behave identically
on (ideally) all operating systems and not depend on such things as
system-specific RNGs.  Therefore a built-in generator is needed.  It
is there and it is good (much better than would fit GNU Go's needs).
But there is absolutely no reason to alter or replace it.
