I suspect a lot weren't needed before this change - #includes seem to breed,

The fields are shared between IKEv1 and IKEv2.

The old code had something like:
    struct {ike,esp}_alg_info {
      struct alg_info ai;
(yes esp, was used by ah)

which pretty much forced everything to include the header anyway so
that they could pass &ai.

Anyway, a cleanup I've somewhere in my queue is to move the definition
of struct {ike,child}_proposal to connection.h, they're not used by
the proposal code proper.
