namespaced-openvpn is a wrapper script for OpenVPN on Linux that uses network namespaces to solve a variety of deanonymization, information disclosure, and usability issues. Relative to OpenVPN's default behavior, it can be used to provide additional hardening or additional isolation (e.g., running some processes inside a VPN and some outside it, or running multiple VPN sessions concurrently and assigning different processes to different VPNs).

@RMerlin, any way to integrate this into your firmware?
That script requires Python, which is a huge resource hog, and not available in the firmware. It also assumes a regular full-featured Linux environment, quite different from an embedded environment like used by the router.
