Description:
------------
---
From manual page: https://php.net/function.shuffle
---
People around the world are struggling by using the shuffle() function. There is absolutely no reason to reset the keys to 0,1,2,3 when shuffling the array.
Please make shuffle() maintain the keys.

Expected result:
----------------
call shuffle() and move on.

Actual result:
--------------
Have to write cumbersome, long, inefficient functions just to restore the key=>value associations.
