public in year 2002-2003, please search archives... I made many changes 
to this module, main of them is that sqlippool _not_ create different 
pool of sql connections for _each_ configured pool of ip-addresses. 
Second, when I made this patched module available in 2003 on the web for 
public, I also ask confirmation for it, they are agreed, as I know. 
Sorry, but I not have that message already. I think that if they want to 
stay that code incaccessible for public, then they should not post it to 
freeradius-list. But they did. -- Ruslan A Dautkhanov rusland at scn.ru
