Temporary Accounts

I'm replying to myself because I found a very ugly solution to cope with my
needs: "Have an account not available before a given date".

I post this here in case this could be useful to someone, and to get
feedback if others have found better way to achieve this.

I eventually get it working by:
* using the hint file:

* Checking the MYSTRINGATTRIBUTE-NOTBEFORE in the users file
DEFAULT MYSQTRINGATTRIBUTE-NOTBEFORE >= '20061128', Expiration := '29 Nov

I have then 2 questions:
* for the moment I use (or mis-use) an existing String-attribute from a
vendor dictionary: is there a way to define 'private Radius attributes' in
order to avoid this 'attribute usurpation' ?
* I've seen in the code that adding the Not-Before config attribute (similar
to Expiration) to Freeradius shouldn't be too tricky: is it something that
could prove to be useful for other users ?
