[issue696] IPSEC recommendation

I just sent an email explaining that I was
recommending DragonFly should use the CipherPacket
algorithm in IPSEC. The CipherPacket source code in
C12 wouldn't I suspect be directly applicable to an
IPSEC implementation. But the algorithm as implemented
in the source code and described in the source code
comments *would* be applicable.
