  FreeRADIUS is receiving the password.  The problem is that the RFCs say you're not allowed to put User-Password into CoA packets.

  The better question is why do you want to send a password in a CoA request?

  Sure.  Send a patch.

  It should be about ~60 lines of code.  Just cut & paste & edit.
