looking for sugestions for IPSec

I've been asked to implement IPSec (to establish a VPN to a specific destination) on our small MIPS/Linux 2.4 embedded system. I've started looking at FreeS/WAN which has "factioned" off into  Openswan and StrongSwan. I'm looking for recomendations on the best choice. (I need a reason why you think it's best, ie easy to implement, smaller footprint, flexible options, etc) Are there other better alternatives? I'm really interested in hearing from people that have actually added IPSec to the Linux kernel.

Read /usr/src/linux/MAINTAINERS find IPV4 section there, all these people are listed there. You will find there Alan Cox and some other well known persons...
Also look into /usr/src/linux/net/ipv4/af_inet.c header, there are also some contacts.

IIRC StrongSwan has build-in X.509 support

for the record, I chose to go w/ StrongSwan. On the surface, it appears to have more complete documentation.
