 As part of #24985, we'll need to implement
 handshake.txt prop#269]. This should probably be in two parts:

  1) Implement a new module which, given function pointers to two
 handshakes (one classic and the other post-quantum secure) which follow
 some prescribed API, compose the handshakes together to produce a final
 shared secret
  2) Implement "hybrid null" (as it's called in the proposal), which here
 I'm calling "ntor2"

 This ticket is about part 1.  It depends upon #24986 as well.
