### Description

It's clear that your previous (1.29) and current verisons (1.32) has no really uniform point distribution on sphere. This fact can be proved by observation that distributions of all coordinates are independent on each other. For example for 3D-sphere really uniform distribution is given by Euler angles (x, arcsin(2t - 1)), where x is uniformly distributed random value on [0..2*pi].
