There are two parts of the question:
1) Code aspect
2) RPM/SRPM aspect

IMO the code can live in IPA git repo in a separate directory or be a
completely separate source code project.
We can start with IPA repo and spin it off like we did with the
ding-libs if we see a need.

As for packaging IMO it should be a separate SRPM (or a part of IPA for
now) and produce a separate rpm that should be conditionally installed
if IPA client and EAP are installed on the same system. I wonder if rpm
can do that? Sounds like a conditional require (if something like this
is possible).
