Looks like Alan has just updated the Perl example:

Looking at what is going on, I think there might be some indirect 
'BEGIN' abuse that causes this to work.  I spoke to my 'goto' Perl 
friend and he suggested that the following is the way to probably do 
our %static_hash;

>From my mod_perl experiences, that does sound/feel familiar.

Anyway, in my example just does caching for an EAP session between the 
first call through authorize{} and the final post-auth{} call; which 
probably explains why it works for me.
