Personally, I'd use iptables to set up a LOG rule (with a limit to
prevent more than, say, 1 every 60 seconds) to cover traffic that looks
like it ought to be going out the VPN, and then have a process that
watches my system logs for the relevant log message and invokes OpenVPN
when it sees such a packet and OpenVPN is currently down.
