Shouldn't a module just be able to be uploaded to a running m0n0wall
system in a similar way to a new firmware? Making a module that needs
to have the original image edited and the "module" code included is more
like hacking the base than adding a module to me.

I'm off for a week of babysitting my sister's kids (school holidays) so
I'll be pretty much unable to test anything. And as I have a net4501
and no other FreeBSD system, it looks like your module cannot be
uploaded to the net4501 to test anyway - I don't want to hack a working
m0n0wall base to add a module.
Good luck - I hope this works out for you and those looking at OpenVPN.
