Will the OpenSwan VPN server do the appropriate routing (so that I get a star topology and not a mesh topology)?

It will work if you are using KLIPS and not the native 2.6 stack. If you use the latter, you need to create some passthrough routes. Dig 
through the archive to find Herbert's post on that (or perhaps someone added it to the wiki)

No :)
