I think a global strongswan.conf option would be sufficient.

Sounds reasonable. There is one problem, though: We can't generate the
packet yet, as we need the destination address for the NATD payloads.
This would make that approach utter complicated (unless we disable NAT
traversal if the option is set).

It probably would be simpler to have a dedicated retry mechanism
triggered by it's own job.
