The server could receive an Access-Request, and just initiate an Accounting-Request, instead of going through a detail file.  Doing that requires some more architecture changes, which Arran and I will start in the >new year.

In v3.1.x you can use attribute references, which use the raw attribute value.

For example if you set

	format = &Tmp-String-0

update request {
	Tmp-String-0 := "foo\nbar"

It would write:


You can also use the multi attribute selector

	format = &Tmp-String-0[*]

and log all instances with a line delimiter after each instance.

The line delimiter can also be customised.

Is that sufficient?
