@patrick-schultz can you verify that we don't need to serialize some state of java.util.Random and set it on the other side? If that's OK with you, then dismiss my review and approve this PR.

from Patrick on zulip:

Sorry, just saw this. Since it's currently nondeterministic anyways, I don't see any problem with just making a new Random on each worker with the default random seed. But I would think there should be a way to just serialize seeds to use to construct new Random instances that would still allow us to make ApproxCDF deterministic using a NonAssociativeCombiner.

I think this is fine for now.
