in thread Truly randomized keys() in perl 5.17 - a challenge for testing?

Unless keys() can be switched to a test mode to produce predictable results (doesn't need to be sorted, just give me something predictable, like before perl 5.17), what are the options?

It hasn't been predictable since 5.8.1. It just happened to be the same most of the time.
