	Does anyone have a handy way in Mathematica of making convex random
polyhedrons in 3D? The number of points should be a parameter. The
points do not have to be evenly spaced (obviously) and if up to say
10% of them are not quite convex, that's ok. I have some ideas but
maybe it's already been done. 
	I know about ConvexHull3D.m and maybe that's the best way, but
it doesn't return the number of points, which must be computed. That
seems inefficient because the number of points must be exact.
