thanks for the suggestion.

i've had a look at this and it doesn't seem like an elegant solution to me.

i'll have another look to see if it is possible using mechanisms within the
radiusd.conf (perhaps calling 2 modules, one to reply, one to forward).

You could use radrelay. See the radrelay(8) manpage in 1.0.x version
or radrelay.conf(5) manpage in CVS version.
