The sendonionmessage RPC command can be used to send a message via the lightning network. These are currently used by offers to request and receive invoices.
hops is an array of json objects: id as a public key of the node, and either rawtlv containing a hexidecimal TLV to include, or any of the fields short_channel_id, blinding, enctlv, invoice, invoice_request and invoice_error to construct the onionmessage TLV with.
reply_path is a json object, containing a pubkey blinding, and an array path of objects containing id (a pubkey) and enctlv (a hex value, optional for final element).
On success, an empty object is returned.
