The Debian package already sets the raddbdir to "/etc/freeradius". Of
course it's OK for me to rename "radiusd.conf" to "freeradius.conf",
too. The only problem I see is it may rise many questions on the users
mailing list.

Speaking personally, I think it's a good thing to be standard, and I'd
like to see this change, too. I also understand that a lot of users
may be disturbed by such a change, so I don't really know what should
be done in this case.
