[Openvpn-users] Anyone using PPTP over openVPN ?

I'm looking for replacement of a strongswan/l2tp roadwarrior vpn  
solution and am thinking about having PPTP (or l2tp) over openVPN.

I've noticed equivalent questions in the past but without true return  
of experience.

I need to keep my old solution features (rsa host authentication +  
password-based user authentication + radius server accounting and IP  
pool management + iptables tules). Here is what I imagine:
* get an ssl tunnel with mutual authentication of the server and the  
client host (asymetric crypto authentication)
* then run a PPP-over-ip-like protocol (pptp or l2tp) to authenticate  
the end user against a radius server (password based authentication)
* the radius server will assign an IP address from a pool  
corresponding to the user profile (several profiles defined) and  
record accounting data
* the vpn server will then enforce different iptables rules to these  
pre-defined IP addresses pools

Is it possible ? Is anyone sucessfully using such a solution ?
Is there any good doc on such a setup ?

Thanks in advance to guide me through my first steps toward a working  
openVPN test platform.
