I'm OK with this.

I have now created some tests for fallback scenarios.  They are tagged with
a simple "fallback": true in the test case.  I have updated the wiki page
with a description of how Noise Pipes can be tested plus a link to the new
test cases from Noise C.

Feedback is appreciated.  I would also appreciate it if others could try
out these new vectors as the IK to XXfallback transition and role reversal
is tricky and I might have messed up somewhere.

The current method for defining fallback test vectors is very primitive.
As discussed elsewhere we need a more general method.  The test vector
format can be updated later once we figure out what that may be.
