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.
