in the authorize section of your virtual server, straight after the preprocess/suffix/realm
module calls (ie before any real authorization action)

correct - you will deal with your LOCAL realm by handling your defined realm,
with eduroam you dont want to EVER authenticate a user you hasnt provided
a realm - because , for your own users, they may work fine....when they are at your
site....they then think/believe their configuration works...and then find it
doesnt work when they go to another eduroam site...and then they'll blame
that site, your site or eduroam.   best policy for eduroam is ALWAYS ensure
a realm is defined on the client
