If I read RFC3484 correctly you can configure a 'policy table'
with a best precedence value assigned to the single IP address
that you want to use when talking to some network by giving the
single address and the network the same distinguished label.
That seems to be sufficient.
Is the RFC3484 support implemented for KAME and for FAST_IPSEC?
