Okay, so I really like the account policy of #SportsBetIO - who just emailed to say that my account has been inactive therefore will be deleted unless I place a new bet soon.

After long and careful conversations, the library that I passively maintained for many years is now transferred under the umbrella!

Which, given it's name "Pointy Castle", seems like it was always meant to be :)

... is I think revealing of how deep the issue is.
Just a caveat, don't interpret this to mean "MuSig is broken", as it categorically isn't; it's just that some preferable ways of using such a protocol are more dangerous than they first appear (see: 2 round vs 3 round as described in the article, but note also the discussion of VMs).
