Re: how to apply shemas

	I was unaware of this draft...It seems like a fairly difficult
approach to the thing.  In my RADIUS server implementation, I made
radiusAttribute be any RADIUS attribute, instead of trying to fit all
possible attributes into my schema.  It makes me less likely to have to
change my schema or application to deal with it.  The schema looks like

objectclass spyRadiusEntry

	Where radiusSuperClass defines a set of defaults that this class
will be overriding.  The radiusSuperClass points to the dn of another
spyRadiusEntry to extract a set of radiusAttribute attributes from (or
follow to another radiusSuperClass if you want to be sick).  This
basically means I can assign a user the property of being a ``dialup
user'' and have a shared set of attributes for a dialup user, then assign
static IP addresses to users if I need.

	My way may be over-simplified, but it works great for me. : )
