Feature suggestion: Allow announce/share of local actor objects

Hi,

I sometimes find it useful to re-share notes, which isn't possible at the moment in Microblog.pub. I haven't looked too deeply, but as boxes.send_announce assumes the announced object is an inbox_object it will eventually fail trying to fetch the local actor.

It looks like that function could check for an outbox_object first, though there may be knock-on effects?

Or perhaps it's intentional to leave this feature out? I suppose it could be reasonably perceived as spammy to re-announce your own posts.

Curious about people's thoughts on this.

Hey,

Yes I have this on my todo list, I did not see it as a "high-priority" feature to support, but since other software support it, I think it makes sense to support it too.

I will keep you updated here, thanks!
