    11In some cases it might not be random.  For example, you might have a test that prints a dictionary, and the key order may be always the same on a particular Python version on a particular platform.  But that doesn't mean it should be relied on to be ordered properly.

    3 Or you might have a test that prints out a filesystem path that obviously won't be the same on all machines.  That doesn't make it ''random''.  I just think random is a misnomer for this purpose.
