My main concern with this patch is that when combined with caching, it only randomly re-orders stuff on a cache purge, which isn't really what people want when they specify "random" (I think anyways) Although it would work for some use-cases.

when they specify "random"

But I think it may be what we want.

Some randomizer would be a great tool in DPL, and I would prefer a full randomizer, which reshuffles not only the order of pre-selected results, but also the changes the selection of results itself every time the cache is reloaded. It would be very useful for our planned Czech Wikinews page (and I believe for others as well).

So please, if anyone can, take a look at it. Thanks a lot in advance.

xiangfu, thank you for the patch. I am sorry for the delay in review. Are you interested in using developer access to directly suggest it into our Git source control system? That will get it reviewed faster.
