hey guys... so back in 2014 i was playing with the electrum code, trying to reverse engineer how it makes addresses from the seed.

I thought its time I take another look.  I was under the impression this was simply now bip39 compliant... but turns out this is not the case,
although it gives you the option to import from a bip39 seed... but when you create a new seed it is not bip39.  I am looking into
what they are doing now...seems before it was kind of a home made KDF and now its more standard, but if anyone has info
while i dig into this, give me a shout.

UPDATE:  I guess its bip32 compliant but doesn't use bip 39.  Good to know.   Anyway i figured out how its getting the master keys,
i'll work on address generation maybe tomorrow Smiley
