Convert to/from Koremutake Memorable Random Strings

The StringKoremutake module converts to and from Koremutake Memorable Random Strings.

The term “Memorable Random String” was thought up by Sean B. Palmer as a name for those strings like dopynl, glargen, glonknic, spoopwiddle, and kebble etc. that don’t have any conventional sense, but can be used as random identifiers, especially in URIs to keep them persistent. See http//infomesh.net/2001/07/MeRS/

Koremutake is a MeRS algorithm which is used by Shorl http//shorl.com/koremutake.php. As they explain “It is, in plain language, a way to express any large number as a sequence of syllables. The general idea is that word-sounding pieces of information are a lot easier to remember than a sequence of digits.”
