huntgroup issue, multiple huntgroups per device

Is it possible to have multiple huntgroups for the same NAS-IP-ADDRESS?

I am running into this issue trying to configure a vpn appliance that uses
the same freeRADIUS server to authenticate its users as well as its admins.

The huntgroups file gets checked from top to bottom, so depending which
specified group comes first, the other gets denied access.


vpn        NAS-IP-Address ==
                Group = VPNUSERS

vpn-admin  NAS-IP-Address ==
                User-Name = admin1,
                User-Name = admin2

This config keeps the admins out of the vty but lets the users vpn in.

Debug reveals:
No huntgroup access: [admin1] (from client port 6256 cli
  modcall[authorize]: module "preprocess" returns reject for request 1
modcall: leaving group authorize (returns reject) for request 1

FYI, my users file checks for admins first then falls through to framed

I would like to avoid adding another ip address to the vpn appliance if at
all possible.
