Many months later, after some discussions with .. some people, I see another aspect to this which is actually very useful and I had a total blind spot to it.

And that means that adaptor-based atomic swaps can be done differently than I previously assumed.

@FreePietje Well I find you ridiculing the lack of my capabilities deeply offensive. Who do I speak to on Mastodon to ensure that people don't comment on my capabilities (or lack of) again? The NYT wouldn't publish the drivel that I am typing so why should FB, YT or Mastodon?
