It is mostly for testing purposes, I don't think that there is much real
use from it in productive setups.

The delay is applied to any IKE message of the configured type sent by
the daemon (or all messages if no type is configured).
Configuring send/receive delays allows us to add delay to messages and
reproduce some nasty corner cases, such as exchange collisions.
