Hi maintainer and possibly other devs :-).
I'm in the need of the python API for libvici for strongSwan as I need to script a few things. The python module is in the link below.
The plugin is in the same repository as the main strongSwan port.
So my question is, do we want to create an option to the current port to include the python interface or do we create a seperate port that gives this functionality? eg py-strongswan-libvici
Per the repositories setup.py[.in], vici is already packaged in PyPI as "vici" 
It should be ported/packaged individually under the name sysutils/py-vici, or security/py-vici to match strongswan's category.
Strongswan may then add a PYTHON option which *_DEPENDS on that port.
Please create a new Bugzilla issue that "Blocks" this issue ID, with summary:
"[NEW PORT] security/py-vici: Native Python interface for strongSwan's VICI protocol"

Initial patch that adds the PYVICI option. Feedback always welcome.

I'd name this PYTHON, "Python vici protocol plugin" as its PYTHON_DESC, leaving room to create a VICI options group in the future for the other plugin implementations that exist

Rename option to PYTHON with description suggested by koobs.
