Private key format

Just noticed that some implementations of Ed25519 store the private key as (seed,A).

I am using the implementation with both public key (A) and private key (a,RH).

This means more complexity and extra 32 bytes, so it's probably wise to switch to (seed,A) instead.

I wish I noticed this earlier, now will have to spend a day or two carefully updating everything...

Nice solution! What about password resistance against quantum computer?
