    Brings the popular ruby faker gem to Java and Kotlin

    This has another bottleneck, each time you request something, it ends up with a IO call to open a file, as all fake data is stored in a file: https://github.com/datafaker-net/datafaker/blob/master/src/main/resources/en/dragon_ball.yml I recently filed a bug to javafaker that in some cases file descriptor was never closed, resulting in even worse performance and memory leaks, killing our service after millions of method calls.
