Having two nested pcrypt templates in one algorithm instance
does not make so much sense in the first place. I thought
that the crypto layer would refuse to build an instance
with two nested templates of the same type.

At least for pcrypt, refusing such instantiations would
be the correct behaviour. Are there any other templates
where a nested use would make sense?
