Redis: Adding a 128-Bit K-Ordered Unique Id Generator

Interesting pull request submitted to Redis by Pierre-Yves Ritschard:

This is similar to what snowflake and the recent boundary solution do, but it makes sense to use redis for that type of use cases for people wanting a simple way to get incremental ids in distributed systems without an additional daemon requirement.

Snoflake is the network service for generating unique ID numbers at high scale used (and open sourced) by Twitter. Flake is an Erlang decentralized, k-ordered id generation service open sourced by Boundary.
