Basic key derivation from mnemonic seed phrase

draft optional author:fiatjaf

BIP39 is used to generate mnemonic seed words and derive a binary seed from them.

BIP32 is used to derive the path m/44'/1237'/0'/0/0 (according to the Nostr entry on SLIP44 ).

This is the default for a basic, normal, single-key client.

Other types of clients can still get fancy and use other derivation paths for their own other purposes.
