Default Unifying Python world generation tools

Looking on Makhidkarun currently there are I think five different projects for generating world data, one of them mine. I was about to merge mine into py_tools, but I'm considering what would be a responsible way to do that.

I've long wanted to genuinely collaborate on these tools with others, as a community. Recently I've been working with Leitz to do that under the py_tools project because I think the right way to do that is under a single repository, otherwise I suspect all our tools will remain siloed. In doing so I've followed Leitz' example and refactored my code as libraries, with a separate command line interface script.

I think this is the right way to go. It also opens up the possibility of providing a single interface script that can call on multiple different libraries on the back end. Once our code is in a single repository I hope it would be a lot easier to share code and call into each other's stuff. For example Golan's scripts do star gen which mine doesn't.

Anyway, it's a thought.
