The process I recall happening at a former job was that someone
would generate the new password commands on a local router, get
the encrypted passwords from that router's config, put them into
a config file, and then use an expect script like cisco-load to
push that config to all of the routers.

If folks do have scripts they would like to share, we can add them
to the rancid distribution.
