Latest patches rename randomSample => sample, again offering a
documented alias to assist migration.
It would be nice to complete the set and eliminate randomCover,
but in this case "cover" seems too vague a name to use. Any
suggestions for alternatives? I wasn't able to readily find an
equivalent in other random number libraries.
"permutation" seems good to me (or "permute"?), but perhaps
others have suggestions or can point to a typical naming practice
from other languages?
