Address pool management is MUCH better suited for the NAS than
a RADIUS server. If something goes awry and the RADIUS server
gives someone a dup address, all kinds of things will happen.
Some NASes (like the Ascend) give you the ability to define multiple
address pools and specify which pool per profile.
