Well, I experimented with rlm_exec half a year ago, and I didn't found it
suitable for my needs, where Exec-Program and Exec-Program-Wait did!
I would suggest deprecating them, but not removing, so to give people time
to move to rlm_exec or rlm_perl (when is that finaly going to be stable?).
When I have time, I'll try rlm_exec again to see if things have changed in
the right direction.
