Wanted: OpenVPN GUI configuration thinger

I want something that makes configuration easy.
  1. For apache, apache configuration should be easy - pick a directory, allow, deny, virtual hosts, add in php...
  2. For OpenVPN - it should be as simple as the window network setup wizards, but also transparent enough so you can delve into details...
Basically, I had to spend two hours traveling from A to B to configure OpenVPN, and I don't even know if I got it right.
In reality, all I had to do was know where I wanted to connect to, forward some ports on the respective routers, and pick some new virtual IP addresses.
The documentation was confusing as fuck!

So: OpenVPN needs a wizard that helps you write out the configuration files, and generate keys, etc. So does Apache.

Help me, LazyWeb!
