All of the SQL support in Radius is based on the DBI/DBD perl libraries, which
is where the opens and so on occur. You can access any of the routines and/or
objects defined in those libraries.

You may find, however, that you can do what you need to with the AuthSelect,
AuthColumnDef, AcctSQLStatement and AcctColumnDef configuration parameters.

See Section 6.23 in the Radiator 2.14.1 reference manual for details.
