it would be really nice if the policy allowed vpnc to read from /home

This would allow to keep all vpnc config files in $HOME/etc/vpnc for example

When the using the slick new FC6 feature of encrypted /home we have better security

Once there is anaconda support (or any support at all) for encrypted / this RFE
becomes moot.

We are trying to protect /home from system space.  So you would have to do this
with local policy.  Why wouldn't you just encrpt a directory where you store the
vpnc configuration.
