  It depends dramatically on how the implementation was done. Our new code
(about to be released, not what was recently released) has all these things as
severable modules with a well-defined interface... just in case someone wanted
to reimplement the IPsec and crypto modules but keep all the more difficult to
build pieces of the puzzle (key management, policy, API, etc.).
