Can you provide a comparison of how its better than rlm_sqlcounter?

Would you like this code to go into cvs?

Do you plan to add/support different sql databases in future? It's not 
critical that you do, we thank you for the code contribution either way but 
at some point someone will try to use postgresql or some other database (me 
for example :-) and someone will need to support it...

Same question applies to rlm_netvim_pools...
