Hi Ethan,

Very good to see your OP_CAT design is now on the mailing list.

Inside the BIP text, you mention that a sufficiently large OP_CAT script 
can "support tree signatures with a thousand public keys." I think it would 
be more useful to put the theoretical limit there, as it is buried along 
with the rest of the data on tree signatures inside the reference link to 
Blockstream's web page, which could go stale for whatever reason.

On a further note, if there are enough practical uses for tree signatures, 
we could make it into a fully fledged BIP too, instead of just something 
cool that would make the Stacker News front page.

Hi everyone,

We've recently made a number of updates to the OP_CAT BIP proposal 
including adding a rationale section, an expanded backwards compatibility 
section and an updated reference implementation.

It can be found as a PR to the bitcoin/bips repo here:
or as BINANA BIN-2024-0001:
