Random order for wp_user_query

Unlike the wp_query, wp_user_query misses the order by random option.

This option is necessary when you have a lot of users and we want to show only some of them randomly in a widget or anywhere on the blog.

It would be great to have this option in the next wp release.

Querying by rand is a bad idea, particularly when there's alot of rows. Closing as wontfix
