On the freeradius architecture, what do you think is the best way out ?
There is a dependency on external data, if the data comes back fast,
everything is alright. But we can't really guarantee this. It might
be a slow external network, it might be a failed network as well, it 
might also be a slow external database ( a slow HLR ? ) beyond our
control. 

I would imagine that a blocking behaviour with a timeout capability
will be the best compromise to fit the freeradius architecture ?

Best regards.
