Subject Re: Random Field

Example use case: We have a bunch of items sold by multiple sellers. I  
would rather show closely related items  distributed by seller rather  
than clumps of items by the same seller. This will be more of a "fair"  
scoring for sellers. The scores should be within a certain percentage  
of each other to still return relevant results.

Would you mine providing an example of random sort in a boost function/ 
function query. Thanks
