SeedXOR multi-location backup scheme

Full documentation: seedxor.com/

Existig seeds can be broken up with seedXOR or can be used as components of a new a scheme. If there was a BIP39 passphase used keep a copy of the passphrase on every location.

Currently the scheme can be used on a ColdCard and is planned to be implemented in SeedSigner. The seed can also be calculated manually so the ColdCard is not strictly necessary for recovery
