I just tested by stopping strongswan-swanctl, rmdir /etc/swanctl/ecdsa
(I'm not using ECDSA certificates), and started strongswan-swanctl.  The
directory wasn't created.

Inspecting my commit message I see that I had written “… subsystem
‘lib’, log level 1”, so you'd have to turn up charon-systemd.journal
logging to see these messages.

Apologies for the nearly frivilous patch, but having mode 0700 set on
directories potentially containing private keys is kind of nifty ;-)
(and consistent with the strongswan-starter package)
