perhaps another threshold/counter - eg no more than X per hour??  one advantage
of the trigger.conf is that it can be used to bootstrap an external, for
example if the one RADIUS server is getting a little 'hot', I can instruct my S3/cloud/VM
system to spin up another VM and send a message to the load-balancer to say theres another
box it can use...and when things go quiet the server farm can be dynamically shrunk again.
