[Lightning-dev] visual identification of payee node id

Hi all!

Currently, when I perform a payment via QR code, I usually check the
payee node id (public key) in the send dialog. However, this is a rather
long hex value, so for example Eclair app shows just the beginning and
the end of the value.

Idea: Can we show an identicon (for example https://jdenticon.com/) of
payee node id (= public key) next to the QR code, so user can visually
quickly check whether the recipient is correct?

We'd need to add this to UI of all Lightning user-facing wallets to make
sense, though.
