As far I understand it, a kernel recompilation is necessary in most cases, 
so the upgrade won't be smooth anyway.  Not providing an upgrade package 
would leave current freeswan users with their setup, while providing an 
upgrade package would make them pull in openswan on upgrade, when they 
really wanted to keep that kernel and their current freeswan set up.
