  I'me trying to write  a function that will shuffle a vector. At the
moment I'm baically making a vector of randomized indices and then
making  a new vector from the original one using these random indices.

However, is there an alternative (more elegant) method to do this? I
tried help.search('shuffle') but it does'nt return anything relevant.
