I'd like to work with Jeff on this if possible. I'd like to learn more
about VPN setup.

Jeff and I plan on getting into this today. We're going to start
(slowly) with troubleshooting and fixing the sa-update cron system,
and hopefully also apply postgrey. I'll have a look at those two bugs
to see what can be done about those.
