[strongSwan] activating manually configured VPNs with NetworkManager?

Looking at the documentation about the NetworkManager plugin[1], it can
only configure a subset of possible road-warrior configurations through
the GUI

If somebody has their own mechanism in place to deploy ipsec.conf files
to users, is it possible for the NetworkManager plugin to be used to
simply start and stop them from the GUI, without trying to manage the
configuration settings through the GUI?

Is there any alternative GUI for GNU/Linux laptop users to easily start
and stop connections or see the current VPN status?
