This has not changed. It still works like your previous setup, i.e.
l2tpd+pppd assign an internal address to the remote user.

What has changed is that the native IPsec does not have ipsecX
interfaces. This makes it difficult to check the packets coming
in and out the tunnel with something like 'tcpdump -i ipsec0'
and also the 'listen-addr' parameter of l2tpd cannot be used.

KLIPS is being ported to kernel 2.6 so you could wait for that.
