Should we use OMEMO funds for related prerequisite work

Hi all,

I'd like to get a feeling from our contributors about how funds should be used. I've marked several issues as prerequisite to implementing OMEMO recently, and wondered if it's worth allowing part of the bounty to be paid on these blocking issues to try and encourage development on them, or would it be better to save the whole bounty and pay it out to whomever implements OMEMO itself? For example, #292 has nothing to do with OMEMO itself, but needs to be done before any OMEMO implementation is very useful. I'd love to get your thoughts, especially if you're thinking a bout implementing any part of it or are one of the financial contributors to the bounty.

If we do want to allocate some amount, how do we decide how much for each issue?

As long as it demonstrably furthers the goal of implementing OMEMO, I don't personally have any issue with re-allocating funds to those blockers.

I'm also comfortable leaving the specific amounts up to you; I still don't have much experience with Go in general — much less this codebase — and wouldn't have a reasonable idea of how much each issue is "worth" in terms of implementation difficulty, time requirement, etc.

If I'm honest, I'm really bad at this sort of thing myself which is partially why I was asking :) thanks for the feedback!
