The current version of this simple Python program lets a user create a cryptographically secure 12-word mnemonic under BIP39. The issue posted here requires that the existing code is cleaned up (condensed, or otherwise improved for speed/performance) while adding the two options below:
1) User chooses at the start of the app whether to supply their own entropy or for the tool to randomly create entropy.
2) User selects whether to use a 12-word (as it current defaults to) or a 24-word mnemonic (note: when users choose for the tool to randomly create the entropy, the option for word length will still be shown, and in all cases, the tool will also compute the check, and only allow 128 bits (not 132) for the user to add, as the tool should calculate those last 4 bits, or for 24 word mnemonics 256 bits (not 264) as the last 8 bit checksum would be calculated as part of validating the mnemonic.
