  Nope.  The only way this would work is if the AP cached the
Framed-IP-Address from the Access-Accept, and then grabbed the DHCP
packet, and put the Framed-IP-Address in it as a DHCP response.

  Run FreeRADIUS as a DHCP server. :)  It works, and you can put session
information from RADIUS into an SQL DB, and then query that data when it
receives a DHCP packet.
