remove randomness in favor of a simpler 1 of N procedure
This deserves a bit of explanation, as the motivating issue explicitly requested randomness. In short, it's hard to get randomness to compile for `wasm32-unknown-unknown` because that is explicitly intended to be as deterministic as practical. Additionally, even though it would never be used for consensus purposes, it still felt offputting to intentionally introduce randomness into a node's operations. Except, it wasn't really random, either: it was a deterministic PRNG varying only in its state, and getting the state to work right for that target would have required initializing from a constant. Given that it was a deterministic sequence anyway, it seemed much simpler and more explicit to simply select one of each N messages instead of attempting any kind of realistic randomness.
