Converts byte slices into human-friendly phrases. The primary purpose

random characters. Random characters are both difficult to remember and
subject to error when spoken or written down; slurring or sloppy
handwriting can make it difficult to recover a password.

This package is a dependency of the sia storage daemon (see ITP
