  More and more of the token card vendors that we have been talking to are
moving towards supporting radius in one form or another.  It should be
fairly easy to write a generic radius backend that would support more than
one token card manufacturer.

  Aventail's socks server supports a few token cards in this manner
(securid is still a separate module though).  I'm looking at adding a
module to our socks server to talk to PAM as well.
