Won't change the problem - it opens a /dev/tunX device, ifconfigs IPv4
(and IPv6 in -current) on it, and forwards packets over the SSL link.

Buy you'd still need root access on the client end, and you need to have
an openvpn daemon running on the server side - so if you already have
ssh+tun, OpenVPN is "just a different protocol to do the same thing",
but it won't solve your non-root-issue.
