My inclination would be to do this by sitting another service on port
443 that analyzes an incoming connection and forwards it to a different
port owned by Apache or OpenVPN, as appropriate. That way, you're
avoiding the necessity of making modifications to either.

I'm not sure of the details wrt how you'd distinguish the two, but there
are obviously differences -- ethereal can parse the Apache's SSL
handshake, whereas OpenVPN's (even in tcp-client/tcp-server mode) is
opaque to it.
