You can't share VICI connections between threads, but multiple threads
can call the library functions and operate on separate connections.  For
third-party tools you might want to consider using davici [1], which has
a more permissive license (libvici is licensed under GPLv2 like
strongSwan, davici under LGPLv2.1).
