DPD is now an RFC - 3706, and support is in the Openswan HEAD branch.  
However, it needs both sides to support it.  Currently, only Nortel, 
Cisco, Snapgear and Openswan (& Super FreeS/WAN) have support for it.

However, my list might be out of date.

The future is here. It's just not evenly distributed yet.
