Yeah, that's pretty easy to do.  The plugin already uses --client which
is supposed to be eqiuvalent to --pull --tls-client, so all that's left
to do is to actually parse the incoming routes.  Not to hard, patches
accepted of course :)  Need to iterate over the routes from the server
in vpn-daemons/openvpn/src/nm-openvpn-service-openvpn-helper.c::main()
and stuff them into NMIP4Route structures.
