Freeside and Radius sql

Hi Peter, 

When I looked into this issue in the 1.4.1 version, the queries were being 
dramatically slowed down by the way the time-data parameters are submitted, 
parsed, and queried-on.  I hacked up my freeside query routines to make the 
time-data values more optimal for Postgresql.  For the 8.x series, 
Postgresql developer Tom Lane was adding some optimizations to Postgresql to 
improve its performance w.r.t. to various time-data queries.  I haven't 
upgraded to 8.0 yet, though.  And yes, I also added some indexes to my 
radius tables.  I can dig through my code next week - but maybe someone else 
has a quicker or better fix.
