OpenVPN is merely routed IP traffic. It should pass through an IPSEC tunnel as
readily as any other IP traffic does. Government/military often require nested
tunnels; in case a vulnerability is found in the outer tunnel, the inner
tunnel will maintain security. There's probably little reason one couldn't run
IPSEC through an OpenVPN tunnel just as easily. Granted, getting the
addressing right may be a chore.
