  I'm not involved in hostapd, but I think patches would be welcome.

  The issue with Diameter isn't the protocol.  The protocol is fairly
simple.  The issue is the requirements on the Diameter state machine.
And the additional standards requiring all kinds of crazy things around
Diameter.  (3GPP, I'm looking at you).
