You could ask on the l2tpd mailinglist (http://www.l2tpd.org/lists.html)
what they think of the stability of Debian's l2tpd branch. Or ask the
Debian maintainer directly: Jean-Francois Dive (jef at debian.org).

Windows will probably just ignore the DPD 'vendor ID' so Openswan will
not send DPD messages. If you have other DPD enabled peers (Cisco, *swan)
I don't see much harm in enabling DPD.
