This would solve the wakee on lan problem - wouldn't it?

All you'd need is to extend this idea with a config file to select WHAT
broadcasts you route over WHICH vpn's (to conserve bandwidth) and then all
these things would work.

Even if you don't have time yourself, seems like a great find to me.
