Dandelion updates
- fixes and feedback from @gfanti and @amiller
- addresses #1049
- minor refactoring
- two global child stems with fixed mapping between parent and
child stem
- allow child stems which don't support dandelion
- only allow outbound connections to be stems
- adjust stems if opening/closing outbound connections (should
allow partial dandelion functionality when not enough outbound
connections are available instead of breaking)

Bitmessage is a P2P communications protocol used to send encrypted messages to another person or to many subscribers. It is decentralized and trustless, meaning that you need-not inherently trust any entities like root certificate authorities. It uses strong authentication, which means that the sender of a message cannot be spoofed, and it aims to hide "non-content" data, like the sender and receiver of messages, from passive eavesdroppers like those running warrantless wiretapping programs.


Bitmessage is a collaborative project. You are welcome to submit pull requests although if you plan to put a non-trivial amount of work into coding new features, it is recommended that you first solicit feedback on the DevTalk pseudo-mailing list: BM-2D9QKN4teYRvoq2fyzpiftPh9WP9qggtzh
