Create a mnemonic seed (BIP39) from entropy.

$ bx mnemonic-new --help
Usage: bx mnemonic-new [-h] [--config value] [--language value] [SEED]

Info: Create a mnemonic seed (BIP39) from entropy. WARNING: mnemonic
should be created from properly generated entropy.

Options (named):

-c [--config]        The path to the configuration settings file.
-h [--help]          Get a description and instructions for this command.
-l [--language]      The language identifier of the mnemonic dictionary
                     to use. Options are 'en', 'es', 'fr', 'it', 'ja',
                     'cs', 'ru', 'uk', 'zh_Hans', 'zh_Hant' and 'any',
                     defaults to 'en'.

Arguments (positional):

SEED                 The Base16 entropy from which the mnemonic is
                     created. The length must be evenly divisible by 32
                     bits. If not specified the entropy is read from
                     STDIN.
