On a related note... I just noticed that openvpn isn't included in Extras
(yet?). I've found it to be the most simple and reliable VPN software to
interconnect "static" networks after having spent years working with CIPE,
then having messed around with IPSec.

I'll look around to see if anyone has already started working on it or not,
and if there aren't any obvious crypto or similar issues that prevent it
from being shipped, then ask on fedora-extras-list.
