This function provides for a *truly uniform* random sort:
function scramble x -- scramble lines or items in a row
put the number of lines of x into z
if z = 1 then put the number of items of x into n
else put the number of lines of x into n
repeat with i=n down to 2
put random(i) into k
if z=1 then put item k of x into t
else put line k of x into t
if z=1 then put item i of x into item k of x
else put line i of x into line k of x
if z=1 then put t into item i of x
else put t into line i of x
end repeat
return x
end scramble
