Description (last modified by Matt Boersma)

Python's standard library since 2.3 has had random.sample for choosing random elements of a sequence. In contrib/auth/, the implementor was unaware of this and wrote a bit more code than needed.

random.sample samples without replacement. The existing code is equivalent to sampling with replacement.
