Its there, just a bit non-obvious

You wil need to set up 2 AuthBy SQL, each with slightly differetn setup. With
SQL, if you have an _empty string_ for the AuthSelect, it wont to do
authentication. If AcctTable is not defined, it wont do accounting, so:

        AuthByPolicy ContinueWhileReject
        # This one does accounting, but rejects all auths
        <AuthBy SQL>
                AcctTable ACCOUNTING
                DBSource        dbi:mysql:db1
        # THis one does auths, but not accounting
        <AuthBy SQL>
                AuthSelect whatever
                DBSource        dbi:mysql:db2

Hope that helps.
