I did some time ago, I though we had to terminate radius/EAP
requsts but luckily ... we didn't (yet)
It would be a massive task to implement radius+eap.

Performance wise it would probably rock. I know of no other 
technology that would be better suited for a high performance,
high load radius server.

Nice move, it will require quite a bit of work to get
even near 10 % of freeradius functionality though. 
It does everything. It's horribly hard to configure though.
