--- Comment #4 from Darin Adler <darin at apple.com> ---
I think that using randomness is OK to achieve this. But it just needs to be one-time randomness with the results stored in the repository, rather than "every time the tests are run" randomness.

Choosing a different set every time we run tests can make problems with one test affecting another into hard-to-reproduce flakiness. And we’d like to avoid that even if it’s unlikely.
