[Lightning-dev] Ionization Protocol: Flood Routing

Here is a scheme I thought of for flood based route finding. If it can be
pulled off it would allow efficient route finding while keeping the shape
of the network hidden, as well as giving onion like anonymity.

After writing it up a realized that it has a trivial denial of service
attack, that could render it a non-starter.

I'm throwing it out there anyway, because this could have significant
potential if the DoS problem can be solved.
