Support the direct, cross-chain atomic exchange of ZEC for ether.

See the Project Alchemy blog post for background. Discussion on this topic can be found on the #alchemy channel on our community chat, and on the forums.

NB: Although this type of functionality has often been referred to as “atomic cross-chain swaps”, I recommend that we avoid using the word “swap” because it already has a specific meaning in the financial sector.

Is it "trades" or "transactions"?

"Transaction" already has a referent in Zcash, and a trade is not necessarily implemented as a single transaction (even if atomicity is associated with transactions in the more general sense), so it makes sense to use a different word.

I think this ticket (#2098) depends on #2115.
