I'll definitely check it out when I get a chance.

If it does some of what I need, I will help write some routines 
to make it work with PostgreSQL as well as MySQL.

I have some PHP code I started to develop that has functions to 
read the configuration files. My code can be integrated with what 
you have to allow your code to use items from radiusd.conf and 
the included files. This would allow a more seamless integration 
and simpler setup.

I will dig around, I am pretty sure I have some code that allows 
CSS and table formatted output to be generated from arrays 
generated by SQL queries and other things as well. It makes 
fairly easy work of "beautifying" generated output.;^)
