MySQL: Group membership test

As a backend database to RADIUS I use MySQL. No I have a special problem:

I want to autorize a user for a specific service only if the user is member of 
a specific group, say "RAS_User". This configuration is nescessary because 
this database is used also for other authentication/autorization.

The documentation says, that the authcheck_table is beeing searched for the 
user and the reply items in the authrepl_table are returned for the user. I 
did not find any hint how to configure my freeradius that way, that the user 
is autorized to use the service only if he is member of a specific group. The 
groupcheck is only adds further attributes.

In the ldap module f.i. I can use the "groupmembership_filter".

Is there anything similar in the sql module? How can I configure freeradius or 
the sql module to test the group membership?

Thanks for any help.
