// Package liquidity is responsible for monitoring our node's liquidity. It
// allows setting of a liquidity rule which describes the desired liquidity
// balance on a per-channel basis.
// Swap suggestions are limited to channels that are not currently being used
// for a pending swap. If we are currently processing an unrestricted swap (ie,
// a loop out with no outgoing channel targets set or a loop in with no last
// hop set), we will not suggest any swaps because these swaps will shift the
// balances of our channels in ways we can't predict.
// Fee restrictions are placed on swap suggestions to ensure that we only
// suggest swaps that fit the configured fee preferences.
// - Sweep Fee Rate Limit: the maximum sat/vByte fee estimate for our sweep
// transaction to confirm within our configured number of confirmations
// that we will suggest swaps for.
// - Maximum Swap Fee PPM: the maximum server fee, expressed as parts per
// million of the full swap amount
// - Maximum Routing Fee PPM: the maximum off-chain routing fees for the swap
// invoice, expressed as parts per million of the swap amount.
// - Maximum Prepay Routing Fee PPM: the maximum off-chain routing fees for the
// swap prepayment, expressed as parts per million of the prepay amount.
// - Maximum Prepay: the maximum now-show fee, expressed in satoshis. This
// amount is only payable in the case where the swap server broadcasts a htlc
// and the client fails to sweep the preimage.
// - Maximum miner fee: the maximum miner fee we are willing to pay to sweep the
// on chain htlc. Note that the client will use current fee estimates to
// sweep, so this value acts more as a sanity check in the case of a large fee
// spike.
// The maximum fee per-swap is calculated as follows:
// (swap amount * serverPPM/1e6) + miner fee + (swap amount * routingPPM/1e6)
// + (prepay amount * prepayPPM/1e6).
