Send 18 to configure an [urn]. then banging it 18 times will give you the 
numbers from 0 to 17 in random order. If you bang it one more time it will 
produce a bang that you can use to reset it with a 18.

If you actually need more than that (e.g. see the actual list of remaining 
numbers), [urn] doesn't provide that, so, you will have to make your own 
[urn], or make your own special patching around a plain [urn].
