It might be unclear; it's looks unrelated to that thread; but using
back-shell with DN rewriting and a script running the tool pointed to in
that thread isn't surely a production-ready solution.  __THE__ solution
(IMHO) would be to integrate that tool in an overlay as suggested in my
additions to the cache, since what it basically performs is call a couple
of radius-related API functions.  If anybody is interested in having an
"official" (actually, contrib-ware) integration between OpenLDAP and
radius, just holler.  I'll be happy of putting it together, if anybody
volunteers in testing and debugging it.
