Is there some other way to do this that I've missed?

Thanks, it's a bit of a blocker for us moving to 3.x, I haven't come up with a simple alternative.

The server could receive an Access-Request, and just initiate an Accounting-Request, instead of going through a detail file.  Doing that requires some more architecture changes, which Arran and I will start in the new year.

Sounds like it would lead to a far cleaner configuration setup. When done if you want some feedback drop me a line and I'll try and update our use cases it use it.
