Bogo Sort

This is a pure Python implementation of the bogosort algorithm,
also known as permutation sort, stupid sort, slowsort, shotgun sort, or monkey sort.
Bogosort generates random permutations until it guesses the correct one.

For doctests run following command:
python -m doctest -v

For manual testing run:
