Thank you.

Harmut Wolf also pointed me to an article in the group archive which I had
missed.

 http://library.wolfram.com/mathgroup/archive/2000/May/msg00088.html

My reading of that is that the CA generator passes the tests I mentioned,
and that one could force the use of that particular generator by using
something like
r = Random[Real,{0,1},10000];
integerForBits=Floor[10000*r];

with integerForBits now providing the appropriate supply.
