pre-proxy programme

Sorry, I can't understand it....
If we want to look first if a WISP has enough prepaid, is not the more 
consistent way to look into our local MySQL and reject or forward the 
petition in the pre-proxy stage?

It's innecessary forward the petition (in order to accept or reject from the 
reply) if we then concern about the roamed WISP hasn't qouta! We want to 
save network resources...

We are trying to put rlm_exec in pre-proxy, executing a script which looks 
if the domain has quota, and if so, returns 0; if not, returns 1 to cause 
the reject by the proxy. Is it a good solution, isn't?

Thank for your interest in this so much, really Alan...
