The authorities are more interested in the metadata, who is
communicating with whom.  To reduce the value of this information, needs
to be embedded in a flood of unimportant chats.

The strong cure for revealing metadata is to embed private
communications in a pool of everyone to everyone public communications.

Suppose everyone interested in signing or encrypting their tests in this
pool as a Zooko identity.

Encrypted messages are dumped into the pool with everything else, and
downloaded by everyone, but if he does not have a key that can decrypt
an encrypted message, his client does not show him that message.

Let S be curve25519 public key of the sender, R the public key of the
recipient, r and s the corresponding private keys.

The message starts with S.  It is encrypted using the symmetric key s*R.

The recipient client software tries the symmetric key r*S, which, if the
message is for him rather than someone else, is going to equal s*R.  If
it does not work, obviously for someone else.
