Anyone with an Ed25519 library can already create an implementation,
as I've explained, none of that code is owed by OWS, it's all either
from the public domain reference implementation, or it's simple math
that many other libraries implement. If you're worried about copying a
handful of
lines from signal, go copy them from any other ed25519
implementation.
