RandomRationalPoints :: MaxCoordinatesToTrivialize

MaxCoordinatesToTrivialize -- the number of coordinates to set to random values when doing a linear intersection

Description

When calling randomPoints and performing an intersection with a linear space, this is the number of defining equations of the linear space of the form $x_i - a_i$. Having a large number of these will provide faster intersections.
