I'm going to be looking into this as well.  I'm planning on trying to extend
it to 256 bytes, just in case.

I'm also going to be looking at the handling of the State attribute in
rc_avpair_tostr(), since it's not necessarily a NUL terminated ASCII string;
but rather a length/octet-string combo.

That latter is a heads up to Alan, so he'll know that it might be coming
down the road.
