dupe client entry in clients.conf

Hello List:

Would it be valid to list a host twice in clients.conf.   Each listing would
have a unique shared secret and shortname?

Reason for doing this.

host has two applications that run.  One is a NMS monitoring
package (sends rad packets to the radius server to verify it's running and
operating with the db correctly).  The second is an authentication and
bandwidth provisioning system.

I could configure both apps to use the same shared secret and shortname if I
have to, but I like that fact that I can look at the radius logs and see the
logs from the specific apps.

I have added both clients to clients.conf and restarted radius.  I didn't
see any errors or warnings about it.
