[Openvpn-users] Running openvpn under runit/supervise

Currently, openvpn runs started from /etc/init.d/openvpn using this

/usr/sbin/openvpn --writepid /var/run/openvpn.server.pid --daemon ovpn-server --cd /etc/openvpn --config /etc/openvpn/server.conf

Now I'd like to run it using runit (http://smarden.org/runit/), which
requires openvpn to stay in the foreground. Problem: If I omit
"--daemon ovpn-server", logging will work differently.

How can I keep openvpn in the foreground, but keep the syslog()-style
logging I now have?

% openvpn --version
