There is an updated version of the radusers that uses three stored
On a heavily loaded system with 20000 users, the old one took ~3 minutes
to run and create the file. The new one has a lot more smarts and
the file directly to disk (and will erase it if it runs into a problem).
On that same system, it only took 18 seconds to write the 20000 users to
the users file. Much better and doesn't make your SQL Server crawl. :)

It also fixes the quotes problem and correctly handles all of the
types correctly (the first one didn't differentiate between them). It
a compiled C application, runs from a command line and can easily be
using SQL Executive. I thought it was in the /emerald/beta directory,
I'll check and make sure the new one is there.

Of Course, I'll also move yours into /emerald/contrib/misc.
