cPosition generateRandomPositionInSection(int32_t sectionID) const;


sectionID The section within which a random position should be generated.
(Must not be -1.)

Return Value

This method will usually succeed, in which case a valid position in the specified section is returned.
The call may fail, in which case an explicitly invalid position will be returned (cell set to -1).
Calling code should always check for this case.
Except for in pathological circumstances, calling this method repeatedly should eventually return a valid position.
