Accounting detail file formats haven't changed in years, so they 
probably work fine.

I recall radiusContext was quite good when I last used it, and it's 
written in python so should be very easy to extend.

They reason you probably didn't find many is that often people push the 
accounting into an SQL server, either directly using rlm_sql, relayed 
using rlm_sql_log or via radrelay and a 2nd server, which obviously 
makes most of these packages redundant for parsing purposes.
