[Bitcoin-segwit2x] Orderly Process for Coin-Splitting after the fork

I'll also mention for completeness that the big-block bounty transaction (
http://www.blockbounties.info/) has many anyone-can spend outputs which are
meant to be used to enable anyone else to add funds to the bounty, but also
effectively can be used for splitting funds.

This is similar to the coinbase-tx approach, but can happen essentially
immediately post fork (no need to wait 100 blocks).

The downside is that the originator of the transaction could invalidate it
before the fork happens, so it's not 100% guaranteed to work.
