  After reading that spec... those guys are crazy.  They invented their
own format, and didn't even use sub-TLVs.  It will be a LOT of work to
get this done.

  It's not difficult work.  It's just that the document specifies a lot
of "one off" data formats.  This means every single case has to be
handled by writing code.  If they had used a generic format, then we
could have done a "dictionary to attribute" mapping as with normal RADIUS.
