Which means for every accounting request, radius server
will invoke rpm_perl module ? Because freeradius is 
so flexible, I am wondering which is the optimal method,
and here are some of the possibilities :-

1. Just invoke a perl module, and reply ( like what you did ).
2. Do database checking in radiusd via %{sql:....}, and do 
   reply inside radiusd.
3. The database checking converted into a database store
   procedure and then do rely inside radiusd.
