Hi. I am open to adding this feature but as it currently stands we cannot add Ricochet Refresh compatibiltiy without a technical downgrade of the security of cwtch. Cwtch authentication have the cryptographic property of being offline deniable (https://docs.openprivacy.ca/cwtch-security-handbook/authentication_protocol.html#cryptographic-properties) - this is not the case with RR authentications.

Until that changes (either through RR adding a new protocol, or changing their existing one) we cannot move ahead on this feature.
