[Bug 251641] Re: openvpn init script lacks the 'status' action

The trick is that openVPN isn't just "started" or "stopped". Starting it
will start zero or more OpenVPN processes, based on available VPN
configurations and AUTOSTART setting.

After discussion, it appears logical to have the status action list the
VPNs available and their specific status, then consider it a global
success when all VPNs that should be autostarted are running, and
failure otherwise. If no VPN is configured, then it should be considered
a failure.
