It's designed for a very specific use case, but if you install it in a 
sandbox somewhere, you can get a feel for the powershell scripts and 
other bits that are used to configure the clients.

It's all wrapped around Strongswan, so you can transfer the 
functionality to your own setup, if you find it helpful.
