[Swan-dev] adding a test domain

For last couple of years I have been using an extended version of the 
FreSWAN diagram and added "duo"  and  "float"

My motivation was more clear hosts, routing FLOAT with dual uplink.


I have nsrun that support sunset,sunrise, Tokyo. I also have pacifica, (in 
memory of Hugh Daniel), behind sunset. And arctic behind the pole. I will 
update the diagram : Pacifica and arctic.

Along these lines, I have another proposal. To use mixed KVM + namesapce 
setup. The plain nodes, including the nic, could be namespace instead of 
kvm. I use such setup manually.

If and when we tidy up the network diagrams I propose the following too:
addresspools should use a separate rage on each host. Such as  east pool west pool192.0.9.0/24 and special cases you can configure both.
