I want to thank you for that wonderful gift! A long wanted feature :)

I'll test the package and give feed back.

Is it fine to write bug reports here or else?

I tested initial package v.4.5.0-*rc.. but had some problems with 
strongswan-applet ( after reboot, was blocking normal load and work of 
hildon-desktop, only way to uninstall it was to start terminal with hw 
keyboard and deinstall strongswan-applet, and reboot ) still ipsec was 
working fine, but all attempt to establish connection failed. I did not 
have time to dig in to the problem, but will upload now the new package 
and test again...

Great work!
