Will update those soon / in November. Sapio needs the rust Bitcoin taproot
ecosystem to mature, as well as a spec for miniscript taproot (altho we can
kinda monkey patch one in without it).

To be honest, I had some technical difficulties with getting Libera to work
and I gave up... But perhaps I can retry getting it to work again. Irc
infra 🤷‍♂️ struggles...
