I agree that it's a bit strange, but it is organized this way because of 
the zero result check described in the RFC. If the result of the key 
agreement is zero, then that means that the public key is invalid. So we 
compute the shared secret early in engineDoPhase so we can throw an 
InvalidKeyException at the correct time. Then the computed secret is 
kept around so it can be returned by engineGenerateSecret.
