Just out of curiosity: wouldn't it be possible to add all possible IKE
configs (i.e. with the same priority value) to a list of candidates, to
resume the negotiation and later select the one matching the proposals
best? Of course during IKE_AUTH when the constraints are checked the
setup of the SA may still fail due to an ID mismatch. This would solve
Cem's without concatenating the proposals, or is there anything which
arguments against this idea?
