Why is it so desirable to have all the RADIUS servers conflict with each
Obviously if two packages contain a binary with the unimaginitive name of
"radiusd" then they can't both be installed. However if there aren't any
binaries or configuration files conflicting then I think that installing two
RADIUS servers at once should be possible.
Migrating from one RADIUS server to another is a pain at the best of times.
Being forced to use a chroot environment while testing the new server makes
it even more painful.
