Ledger Account Derivations

The Ledger-provided desktop apps have changed the way accounts are derived with the release of Ledger Live. If you created your Ledger account(s) with the older Chrome app and want to use those account(s) with this library, you will need to set the LEDGER_LEGACY_ACCOUNTS env var. You can only use one or the other at a time. See the notes in source for more information.
