Auto create OpenVPNs?

recently I was needed to make several 10's of OpenVPN tunnels (our "road warriors" find that OpenVPN pretty nice solution to be used from hotels etc), so I setup separate pfsense 2.0.1 instance to use as OpenVPN gate only.
As soon as I used it for tests, it was pretty nice, but as I face the need to create (say) 50-60 OpenVPN-enabled users I feel a bit of sadness. I don't want to setup separate Radius for such a small purpose, though.
So I really wonder if there is any way to automatically create some 10's of such users on pfsense? Maybe some API or something?
Thank you in advance!
There isn't an automated way to make that many users+certificates.
Even if you setup radius, unless you did auth-only, you'd still need certificates.
Anyhow, I wouldn't consider 50-60 users "small", radius would work well for that size. There are freeradius packages for pfSense, though I'm not sure how easy it would be to add users to them in a batch (either freeradius or the new freeradius2 package)
