Well yes this is what I want to do, but through LDAP... (because of the
superior compatibility I can get with other services), so I really don't see
how this is off topic.  I've already started writing something to do OS X
authentication straight to the Radius server without using LDAP, but I'd
like to be able to store the extra info that LDAP allows, as the Radius
server simply stores userid and password.

The fact that I'm doing this on an OS X box is irrelevant, it could easily
be any other kind of box and I'd be in exactly the same position...

OK. Thank you for answering my question, which was whether anyone had
already done this.
