Note that "some implementation can do this" is not the same as being RFC

this is indeed valid, and if so, update to code.

Though we'd gladly accept patches, I think people would rather put their
energy into IKEv2, then into fixing IKEv1 Aggressive Mode.

Michael (Richardson), can you perhaps tell us more about why Openswan
claims there can only be one proposal in Aggressive Mode?
