  That's OK.

  I'd say change both.  I'd like to update the server core to allow
more configurable calling of sections.  So the "post-proxy-authorize"
can morph into "when receiving a reply from a home server, use section
foo, and call the modules authorize function for each module listed in
that section"

  That kind of flexibility also allows you to automagically do
different things based on packet reply code, in a more flexible way
that the current "post-auth-type REJECT".
