Dear Laslo,

I have read the ratox code and compiled it with the latest commit of c-toxcore. Other than a few missing features it works fine, even if it uses some deprecated API.

I've used ii before and I must say I'm pleased with how flexible this design is, even if it's a bit spartan. I could maintain ratox if needed be.
