SAT-Britney does not have this approach and always checks all arches in
common. If you add some test cases to the test suite, I can probably
quickly make SAT-Britney handle them, so you have some real code to
discuss the desired semantics and investigate possible problems, before
setting out to implement it for real in britney2.
