Should this function be required - it would be better as one of the custom parameters of @sort?
I suppose that this could be useful to Reality TV companies that need to give out results 'in no particular order'. Not that I ever watch them of course :)
what would you use it for?

Ummm... What do you want this to do? Select a random element from the list? Put the list in random order?

re Richard: good point - I assumed a random order.
To achieve a random element is already possible anyway
textList:= "London" : "Stockholm" : "New York" :"Bagdad";
r := @integer(@random * @elements(textList));

@3: That will only give You ONE of the elements (random) - but as I understand what Patrick is aiming for is to give the WHOLE list in a random order - not only a single element.
I would prefer the keyword to be called [RandomizedOrder] or [RandomOrder] since it better describes what it actually do.
