This allows the Windows GUI to use these options on the command
line without triggering user authorization errors.

Useful for
(i) ignoring certain pushed options such as "route-method" which
could otherwise bypass the interactive service
(ii) enforcing a safer script-security setting from the GUI

"Because it makes sense and moves toward making OpenVPN on Windows more
robust (pull-filter route-method) and secure (script-security)".  Code
change is simple enough :-)

Your patch has been applied to the master and release/2.4 branch
(security enhancement).
