Most likely mt_srand() will not affect array_rand() and shuffle().

MT_ is a "drop-in" replacement, but it's a "package deal" that you replace
rand/srand with mt_rand/mt_srand.

It won't change the underlying code within array_rand() and shuffle()

On the plus side, PHP has automatically seeded the random numbers for
several versions now...

Don't know for 100% sure that that applies to array_rand and/or shuffle,
however -- Perhaps only built-in seeding for rand() and/or mt_srand()
