I'm thinking about a new function: [mt_]rand_str

string [mt_]rand_str(minlen,maxlen[,charlist]);

where charlist is in addcslashes (and now also [l|r]trim) syntax.
Charlist defaults to 0..9a..zA..Z

IMHO, this would be a very useful function.

Any comments? Maybe not min&maxlen, but simply a fixed len? (since
randomness on the length is ambigious to implement, there are less
possibilities with shorter strings, which raises some issues).

As an extension, the function could also accept an array as charlist,
containing small strings, to produce pronouncable strings.
