NeoChat, encryption, and thanks for all the olms

Ever since work on NeoChat has started in 2020, the most requested feature has been support for end-to-end (E2EE) encrypted rooms. Unfortunately, while libQuotient, the library NeoChat uses for dealing with the Matrix protocol, had some pre-existing support for E2EE, it was not in a functional state at that time and was thus not enabled by default. History Early in 2021, Carl and I were made aware of NLnet, a dutch foundation that sponsors many open source projects, and decided to apply for some funding there to expedite the development process.
