This is supported in the current CVS tree.

These would be nice, but probably as related projects; this seems outside
the scope of Freeside right now.

CCVS support has been contracted for by a customer and will be
finished/tested as soon as I get access to a test environment.

None of the metered-billing options require much additional work in
Freeside; what's needed are data collectors to pull the data in and put it
in a database.  In the case of RADIUS, you should use a server that logs
to a database already, like Radiator or ICRADIUS.

What does this entail, besides the normal signup server?  (Which, thanks
to Kristian, now supports both IE and Netscape CCK autoconfiguration!)
