Why not a random order, kinda hard with standard sql-queries…
A fair number of them implement it (order by random), otherwise it could be done outside the sql for it. After all, not everything has to be translated into sql — if I’m using some other database backend, it might not be able to order by column, so I’ll be implementing a generic ordering scheme for those that can’t do ordering on the db side. So I can do the same thing with random.
But yeah, random is another one that’s been asked for a lot.
