  Great.  I'll delete the "hostname" configuration entry.

  "type" is needed in the "realms" structure for NEW style realms.

  The example uses "type = radius" for OLD style realms.  It's not
necessary for those realms, as it was never used.  And "type = radius"
is not valid for new style realms.

  So that entry in the examples isn't necessary, and can be deleted.
