If you want your module included in v3.x.x branch please send a pull request against v3.x.x.

The FreeRADIUS config parser is just a key value store, you don't need to
know the structure before hand. 

See the 'update {}' section in rlm_ldap.

You can just do:
map {
	<couch db attr> = <radius attr>

Or which ever way round you want it.

You might want to consider using a similar system as rlm_sql does for accounting queries to dynamically decide which mapping section will be used, based on the type of NAS sending the Accounting-Request.
