 Hey Thorsten,

 I have a small patch you might want to include in your branch before it 
 It does three things:
  * fix a typo in your new docs
  * fixes a bug in the randrange unittests
  * adds some more tests for randrange and shuffle

 Furthermore it seems that you didn't commit the test_AllOrNothing.py 

 Let me thank you once more for your determined and -it seems- 
 successful push for py3k support.
