Rad is the best for interiors, however, as you pointed out, the render times tend to make it hard to do that for some scenes. You could try spin lights, but I would use area lights before I did a spin rig. They give nice soft shadows, and while they take longer to render, they are not as bad as rad. Remember to use falloff on your lights to give it the realism you are looking for. Hope that helps. :)
