playing around with removing algos

Example, 'Macs'.

On the man page I read:

"Multiple algorithms must be comma-separated.
If the specified value begins with a '-' character, then the
specified algorithms (including wildcards) will be removed"

It seems that just one algo name is supported on such a line, example:

	Macs -umac-64*

But this form is not supported:

	Macs -umac-64*,-hmac-sha1*

nor is this:

	Macs -umac-64*
	Macs -hmac-sha1*

And I have difficulties in finding _one_ pattern that matches _only_ 
the above algo families, but nothing else.

Can you confirm this behaviour?  Can it be improved?
