so far nobody needed such functionality - to check the from/to user
against the a radius DB. If you want just to to check the from/to
against the credentials, you may use the uri_db module, but you need a
dummy DB connection (even if not to be used) - if "use_uri_table" is 0
(as default) no DB check will be done by these functions.
Maybe in the future this need a fix to make it more simple to used
without any backend.

the functions are exported by different module, so they cannot have same
name - it will conflict. Also Radius and DB backends are not 100%
compatible, so you cannot unify them.
