Sends a raw message to the far end node.
The Messaging API allows for raw messaging to pass in between two Impervious nodes. Potential applications of this include chat, JSON passthrough, key exchanges, custom protocols, and sending invoices. Of course, there are many use cases for this API with some imagination!
As of IMP v0.1.4, you can now send longer data and even files through the lightning network with IMP! For this initial release, IMP will support up to ~480KB of data in a single message. For each 900 bytes of data, you are required to send at minimum 1 satoshi. IE, 9,000 bytes require the message to send at least 10 sats (not in addition, just at minimum). This is required so that the message can be split up amongst multiple lightning payment parts of 1 sat minimum.
