Anyone else? User signoffs are welcome.

I'd like to get this moved to core soon-ish to make way for some more
concrete changes, namely:

* Updating to an svn tarball which has some lovely bug fixes -- several
  other distros are packaging trunk.
* An updated vpnc-script maintained by David Woodhouse (intel employee
  and major kernel contributor) [1]. He's added ipv6 support and a few
  bugfixes as well.

I've also sent David a pull request to get rid of the net-tools
dependency (at least in Linux) and fix a bug in his updates.
