    Closes #104
    DEFAULT_PORTS now a coin property
    A Peer object maintains peer information
    Revamp LocalRPC "peers" call to show a lot more information
    Have lib/jsonrpc.py take care of handling request timeouts
    Save and restore peers to a file
    Loosen JSON RPC rules so we work with electrum-server and beancurd which don't follow the spec.
    Handle incoming server.add_peer requests
    Send server.add_peer registrations if peer doesn't have us or correct ports
    Verify peers at regular intervals, forget stale peers, verify new peers or those with updated ports
    If connecting via one port fails, try the other
    Add socks.py for SOCKS4 and SOCKS5 proxying, so Tor servers can now be reached by TCP and SSL
    Put full licence boilerplate in lib/ files
    Disable IRC advertising on testnet
    Serve a Tor banner file if it seems like a connection came from your tor proxy (see ENVIONMENT.rst)
    Retry tor proxy hourly, and peers that are about to turn stale
    Report more onion peers to a connection that seems to be combing from your tor proxy
    Only report good peers to server.peers.subscribe; always report self if valid
    Handle peers on the wrong network robustly
    Default to rather than localhost for Python <= 3.5.2 compatibility
    Put peer name in logs of connections to it
    Update docs
