Synology: New openvpn init script

My VPN provider isn’t being supported by the Synology VPN client (because they aren’t using the standard port 1194, instead 1195). After tinkering with the ovpn files the Synology VPN client uses to store the connection settings (and failing), I just installed openvpn with ipkg.

However after tinkering around with the init-script provided by the openvpn ipkg from the NSLU2 feed, I got tired and just rewrote the damn thing:

Place the file in /opt/etc/init.d/S20openvpn, and the client daemon will start on boot.
