The new framework will handle RADIUS packets.
The benefit so far is that the new "worker thread" code is independent of any protocols. Instead, it has a plugin framework for protocols. This means that adding new protocols is as simple as writing functions that decode the packet, process it through "unlang" sections, and then encode the reply. Those functions are completely independent of threads, network IO, etc.
