IdentifierSentence: Create unique, memorable ids in Java

IdentifierSentence is a simple tool to let you generate (probably) unique, memorable ids in Java applications.

It creates sentences on the form count + adjective + noun + verb + adverb, as described in this Asana blog post by Greg Slovacek, whom this tool is named after.

Linus G Thiel wrote a Node.js implementation that I based my work on.

Pull requests are welcome.
