Comment (by mlajo):

 Replying to [comment:9 SergeyBiryukov]:
 > Just out of curiousity, what would be the use case for a `wp_rand( 0, 0
 )` call?

 something as @azouamauriac said, we have code with wp_rand( 0, $var )
 where  $var can sometimes be 0. Now we added one "if check" before to
 check if $var is 0 but it was confusing to debug because mt_rand() worked
 as expected.

 If it stays like this it would be nice to put some kind of notice for that
 case in documentation.
