 I was going to say: ls *.png *.jpg etc |shuf |sed q
 But I don't /have/ shuf here. I wonder where it came from on my home
machine... GNU coreutils it seems, must have a newer version at home.
Anyway, shuf is not on my netbsd machine either so I wrote this naive

awk '
BEGIN {srand()}

        while(length(l)) {
                if(i in l) {
                        print l[i]
                        delete l[i]
