Adding multiple keys allows you to accept pkts with different keys
at the same time. Different routers (and different code versions)
might have different ways of expresing the following notions
Which keys will be accepted?
Which keys will be generated?
To get the nice behavior Acee mentions, you need to be able to
coordinate the switch from one key to the next.
