And cvs head ? :)

Could the check_val module be used in the mean time ?

I was just looking to implement your trick with the authz sections, 
unfortunately I also need to support ClearText passwords
for administrative logins to the switches... so I needed to check the 
existence of a User-Password attribute and send the request through the 
right authz section.

Oh btw, any news on the radclient bug ?
