[Bitcoin-ml] Flexible Transactions are canonical

This is one of the reasons on "why we need canonical encoding":

Press the plus button under the "details". Then choose "Show more". Your browser
will crash. Why? 32k outputs

What's even worse? The 32k outputs go to same address (Same "OP_HASH160 52240ef92d746bff5d6fe7c2b200c80d79c31e06 OP_EQUAL" script).

With canonical encoding they'd have to hold 32k private keys or lose money.

(The transaction can be seen here without crashing: https://blockchair.com/bitcoin-cash/transaction/243891360)

(Maybe we need dynamic block size?)
