  For one, the patches are still useful.  There are a lot of
applications using the existing freeradius-client library.  It will be a
*long* time before those applications get re-written.

  So there's still a need for updated releases.

  The new library is *not* BSD licensed.  Parts of it may be in the
future.  But nothing is set in stone, due to commercial / legal issues.
 And those are largely out of my control.

  Having an updated freeradius-client library would be valuable.
