  The only thing that needs non-WWW permissions is a script which does:

[ -f /var/log/radius/] && kill -HUP `cat /var/log/radius/`

  It doesn't need to exec radiusd.

  You've said that a number of times.  We're all very clear on your opinions.

  You can now:

  1) Pay someone to write that code
  2) write it yourself
  3) wait for someone to write it for free

  Repeatedly posting the same comment on the list isn't going to give
anyone incentive to write the code.
