I think that's the right idea. I should probably change the Disco
naming to "Disco_" since it should not be parsed like a "Noise_"
protocol name.

If you're planning to integrate sponge/duplex construction in the
protocol on the long run and you're worrying about Noise's own naming
for them, it really depends on how you will integrate them in Noise.
Will you just add them as more choices for the crypto functions and
such? or will you create a heavier integration (which is what Disco is
probably going to be). I'm guessing it will depends on the result of
the Disco experiment ;)?
