pfSense VPN export naming

At Prophecy, we use pfSense’s OpenVPN capabilities to provide remote access for staff and customers. It’s always bothered me how the exported VPN config is named <device name>-<port>-<certificate name>.ovpn, for example firewall3.us.global.becausimbatman.com-1194-brucewayne.ovpn, since this is what the VPN client on Mac/Windows will forever call this VPN.

I submitted a simple PR to allow the exported package to be optionally named for the VPN server name (i.e. “Office”) instead, which I reasoned would make supporting my users easier.

Unfortunately the repo owners were slow to respond, and by the time the PR was ready to merge, a new version of the pfsense package was in the works (requiring a redo), and the PR was closed without consultation by the repo owner.
