 Subject:  m0n0 as a VPN concentrator

Does anybody have any experience of using m0n0 as a pure VPN concentrator?

A client has a requirement to have a m0n0 connected behind an existing router/
firewall via a single ethernet interface.  Basically its sole function is to 
act as an IPsec VPN concentrator.  Packets to remote destinations would be 
routed to the m0n0, which would then hopefully put them into an ESP tunnel 
(that then goes out of the same interface they came in on) and exits the 
network via the router/firewall.

I can visualise how this works in theory, but I cannot test the theory at the 
moment as I don't have access to my kit this week.

Has anybody done anything like this already?  Any particular problems? Or , is 
there a hole in my theory that makes it not possible/practical.
