I vote for random as well. I think if the tournament is set up so that the highest rated player plays against the lowest, the second highest plays against the second lowest, then you're almost guaranteeing who will be in the final, whereas with random we could see some very interesting upsets and matchings.

Then for the best player, your toughest games would likely be at the beginning of the tournament and get progressively easier, while the players with lower rankings would face progressively harder games. Again, this is assuming that rating is an adequate barometer of skill, which may or may not be the case (sorry about that, Dave.)
What if it was the highest against the 2nd highest
and the lowest aginst the 2nd lowst...and so on?
