Right. But it should be noted that it is not enough that Bob publishes
success_tx before refund_tx_1 became valid. The success_tx needs to be
confirmed before refund_tx_1 became valid.

Only Bob can spend success_tx so this is unlikely to be the practical
problem, unless the original fee of success_tx is too small and Bob
epically screws up CPFP-ing it.

I somehow missed it, and steps 5 and 6 in the diagram was not modelled
at all (on the other hand, it made the model simpler and I had
something working relatively quick). I now made the `signers_map` into
variable that can be changed to give Bob the ability to sign for Alice.

With that change, step 6 can be modelled, but this will add a bunch of
new txs to the model (each Alice&Bob spend will have 'Bob unilateral
override' case)
