Changes (by peterwilsoncc):

 * milestone:  6.0 => 6.1


 I'm moving this to the 6.1 milestone as it's technically a backward
 compatibility break, which doesn't seem great in the hours leading up to
 the RC. The change in behavior will also need a dev-note and there isn't
 time to put one together.

 I did a search of the plugin repo and found an instance of a plugin using
 `wp_rand(0, 0)` to generate a random key. I found one so prior to commit
 someone will need to get in touch with the author of the plugin.
