Well, maybe I'm being stupid here, but I could *never* get FreeSWAN configured and working. This is, I believe, why it never took off.
(It's in good company though - PGP, X.509, etc. are all incredibly complex to configure. The only encryption which I use regularly is 'ssh', and that's because most of the time it just works).
