What I didn't realise before was deep in the darkest murkiest depths of the server core,
is some logic which auto creates the auth types for modules listed in authenticate.

so if you do

authorize {
	if (User-Password) {
		update control {
			Auth-Type := ldap

authenticate {

Should work fine.

If you're doing EAP then this will need to be in the inner tunnel, with EAP listed before 
the if statement (or at leas that's the most efficient way).
