swanctl.conf is the configuration file parsed by the swanctl tool, which
in turn uses VICI to configure the IKE daemon.  Using VICI directly
(e.g. via Python) has absolutely nothing to do with swanctl or
swancl.conf and simply configures the daemon at runtime like swanctl
does, see [1] for details.  So when using VICI directly you have to
persist the config yourself.  Alternatively, but not recommended, write
swanctl.conf files that you then load into the daemon with swanctl.
