[Pkg-swan-devel] strongswan package split?

Hi all,

I'm currently wondering about the various strongswan packages and the
way the binaries are split among them.

Right now, it seems that strongswan-ike (the main strongswan package,
shipping the charon daemon) also ship some useless stuff in most setups.

I wonder if we should reorganize the packages with something like

- a package with the charon daemon
- a package with some libs
- a package with basic plugins
- a package with extra plugins

with the minimal package with the charon daemon having just enough to be
able to setup a client or server in the most common cases (which I guess
are x509/pubkey setups).

I know the various file moves are painful, but I'm not really satisfied
with the current state of the packages.

What do you think?
