Agree. But they are not what rand_str could do. The result has
16 different chars, just because md5 happens to have that much.

Implementing something that has NOT that limitation, is far less trivial.
Below is a - limited - implementation

k, mine is 0.8, 0.9, on the idea, not the details

Better suggestions? Simple length and a list of characters... and the
list-of-characters way is also in addcslashes, and the trims.
