hmm, on the other hand, is there any way in which we could
migrate 1.1.x installations to 2.0 - eg upgrade SQL schema,
convert their tables so User-Password -> Cleartext-Password
(and change operator)... the issue are those folk that have
edited their conf files so badly/much that there is no way
of parsing them easily.... though perhaps using a 1.1.x
radiusd engine to parse the options and to spew them out as
a radiusd 2.x config file?
