Utilities for supporting custom peer-to-peer messages in LDK.

BOLT 1 specifies a custom message type range for use with experimental or application-specific messages. While a CustomMessageHandler can be defined to support more than one message type, defining such a handler requires a significant amount of boilerplate and can be error prone.

This crate provides the composite_custom_message_handler macro for easily composing pre-defined custom message handlers into one handler. The resulting handler can be further composed with other custom message handlers using the same macro.

The following example demonstrates defining a FooBarHandler to compose separate handlers for Foo and Bar messages, and further composing it with a handler for Baz messages.

 # fn main() {} // Avoid #[macro_export] generating an in-function warning
 # extern crate bitcoin;

 use lightning::ln::wire::{CustomMessageReader, self};
 use lightning::util::ser::Writeable;
 # use lightning::util::ser::Writer;

 // Assume that `FooHandler` and `BarHandler` are defined in one crate and `BazHandler` is
 // defined in another crate, handling messages `Foo`, `Bar`, and `Baz`, respectively.
