FSelectorRandomSearch class that implements a simple Random Search.

In order to support general termination criteria and parallelization, we evaluate feature sets in a batch-fashion of size batch_size. Larger batches mean we can parallelize more, smaller batches imply a more fine-grained checking of termination criteria.
