Initial chat messages should be loaded most recent first #1150
Currently, chat messages are loaded from the beginning of time in the room, so the most recent messages are loaded last.
This should be reversed, so the most recent messages are loaded first and afterwards the batches of older messages. There should also be a limit to not load all messages by default and not load messages endlessly for very old rooms.
