  That looks like a fantastic tool, which should be mentioned in the
FAQ, as "how to get protocol-specific accounting information".

  I we were suckers for punishment, we could write a radius plugin for
pmacct, so that the RADIUS server could see that traffic, too.  But
it's probably better to integrate things at the DB layer, rather than
the protocol layer.
