FreeRADIUS 3.0.25 - Unlang Config Retrieval (Load Balancers) from within Authentication Module

Hi there!

I'm currently working for a client that would like to list some servers under load-balancers in their config file and, for a somewhat convoluted reason to do with the authentication method, the IP addresses of those load balancers need to be retrieved at a later date from within an authentication module.  I've pored over Doxygen to try and formulate a way of doing it myself but I'm coming up a little short - it would always be possible to manually parse the config file myself or include the IP Addresses in the individual config file for the module but the client would prefer to do it automatically and for the sake of robustness I'd like to at least attempt to pull those values from within FreeRADIUS before going for the other methods!  If anyone has any guidance on this matter it would be very gratefully received :)

Cheers and all the best!
