Here's an example:
P.<x> = PolynomialRing(ZZ)
R = P.quotient(x**256 + 1)
I = R.ideal(g) # for some appropriate polynomial g
S = QuotientRing(R, I)
S.random_element()
Instead of this last command outputting a polynomial, it outputs a small integer. Looking through the sage code, the `QuotientRing_nc` class doesn't appear to be overloading `random_element`, so I guess the default `random_element` method from the `Ring` class is being called, which just outputs random integers.
Is there any way to generate random polynomials in `S`, or is that functionality not implemented currently?
