Having seen the amount of tables and properties in the sql module, I 
assumed it would be both overkill and too complicated to set up for my 
quite simple usage scenario. But maybe I am mistaken and it is as easy 
as giving freeradius the credentials and putting the usernames & 
passwords in a single table?
