Yes, I think this is the best way to move forward. Thomas told me
however that the transport protocol will be changing in Electrum soon,
so I want to wait until that happens to see how this will correlate
to libbitcoin. They're planning to use the secure Lightning Network
transport instead of current TCP/TLS implementation to drop the Python
SSL dependency.
