Feel free to tell me I'm wrong, but as far as I can tell, the setup scripts
are responsible for adding all the IPv4/IPv6 addresses to the ipsecX
interfaces,  and need to run after the interfaces get there addresses.

Whatever mechaism we use,  it needs to duplicate the startklips script,
or,  we need to change the was ipsecX gets configured :-)
