Of course, I understand that.

I will be explaining Freeradius to some coworkers, including why we
have to use Cleartext-Password and about the := operator in check lines, 
and somehow I came to Fall-Through that seemed like a configuration
item. I had to know exactly what's going on, so I can prepare better.
