Thanks for your email, I have taken a look at the library--it is
nicely done.  Regarding seeding in GSL, each generator is always
initialised with the same default seed for reproducibility.

Could you give some more details of what you had in mind?  The GSL API
has been in use for a long time, so we probably shouldn't make major
changes to it now, but maybe other internal changes are possible.
What ways do you think the existing GSL code could be improved?
