Module is much more complex. It should be capable of handling and
properly responding to all kinds of inputs. You can safely ignore most
of it if you are writing a script as rlm_exec (or rlm_perl or whatever)
will handle that for you. And you have to write the module in C while
scripts can be written in variety of languages.
