Hey, that was my idea ;)  Just kidding!  I was just wondering if you caught
that idea from the GUI I wrote in c#; as that was the method I went through
to trap and send commands to the background openvpn process.

This was the one point that was pretty hard to determine, as there isn't any
"WE'RE ALL CONNECTED AND READY TO ROCK-N-ROLL" message.  I made some pretty
basic assumptions, but these are assumptions and probably rely on certain
debug/log values to work.  So a patch or change to show this would be just
great :)
