  Well... the RADIUS server never talks to the PPPoE server after the
Access-Accept.  So *anything* that happens after that is the
responsibility of the PPoE server.

  The only way the SQL sockets affect users is *during* the login
process.  If FreeRADIUS can't access the DB because all of the sockets
are in use, it will reject the user.

  If the user gets an Access-Accept, it doesn't matter if there were 50
SQL sockets, or 50,000 SQL sockets.
