That looks perfect, thank you.

I had another thought: would it be sane to get rlm_detail to write to a
named pipe?  I guess the problem then is it could block if the listener goes
away.  You could use a second freeradius instance as file reader / pipe

But reading the file directly and using fcntl locking sounds a much better
solution anyway.
