Upstream now ships the vpnc-script maintained by openconnect through a git submodule [1]. There's no need to replace it ourselves anymore.

(As the maintainer is quite responsive, I would suggest to upstream our patches if they're not arch-specific. In general, distro maintainers would certainly benefit from maintaining vpnc together there.)

Upstream has now merged patches from various distributions [1]. Their service file [2] and sample configuration [3] can replace our owns.
