openswan is deprecated by libreswan in rawhide and Fedora 18.

Due to some timing between migration, testing and CVE releases, I was
not able to get the libreswan package in f19 before the freeze. But I
can also no longer build openswan packages because it has been obsoleted:
in rawhide/f18.

I guess I should request releng/fesco for an exception to get it into
f19 despite the freeze? The libreswan-3.3-1.fc19 build already exists.

The NM packages should then be rebuild/renamed to depend on libreswan,
and should work without other modifications.
