What else should radmin do?

I’ve pushed some changes to radmin, which will be in the 3.0.7 release. The changes make radmin work a little better, in that it now makes a distinction between STDOUT and STDERR. Also, when a command fails, radmin will exit with an error:
$ radmin -e “help”
$ echo $?
$ radmin -e “no such command”
$ echo $?
These changes were made possible by updating the underlying framework used by radmin and the server. The result of these framework changes is that we can now exchange *anything* safely between the server and radmin.
So… what would be useful to exchange? We can’t do configuration changes, as the server can’t write to /etc/raddb.
But we could do test packets, for example.
$ radmin “send packet X pretending to be from NAS 192.0.2.1”
And get a response. This means it would be possible to perform better tests on live systems.
Any other ideas?
