  You can out random things in the config file.  The server is flexible
that way.  So long as it parses, it will load, and be usable.

  e.g. put this into the bottom of radiusd.conf, and it will work:

house {
	window = yes
	door = no
	electricity = paid
	rent = 1500

  The server won't care.  It will still work.

  It doesn't say that, because it's a property of the config files, not
the client section.  There are some corners of the server yet to be

  It makes all of the difference in the world.  It's simple enough to be
easily understandable, and complex enough to do a lot of useful work.
