3578 just brought the situation to a boil: RADIUS was being used
(arguably inappropriately) for lots of other thing that really required
the knowledge of a session; limiting the number of simultaneous sessions
by a single user leaps to mind...

The major problems are that a) RADIUS accounting isn't designed for
dynamic session management either, b) you are requiring the
implementation & deployment of accounting even if all it's used for is
session management and last but certainly not least, c) this kind of
stuff belongs in RADIUS, not a kluge.
