Can I put this in bugzilla?  Seems like simultaneous use is completely 
broken in 2.x which is a fairly significant feature.

Also, I have some code I can contribute if the project wants, it's a 
checkrad daemon that accepts connections from a small checkradc client 
written in c.  Because is always running the overhead to do 
an snmp lookup is significantly reduced.  What would be even better is 
if radiusd directly connected to which would eliminate the 
need for the small client.  This code has been in prod for a very long 
time and is stable.
