havent used it; but that's nasty.  i've used mrt, but didnt occur to me
to run rancid against since it did poorly with heavy bgp load.  mrt should
collect as :cisco:, since iirc it's identical to the cisco ui.

can't at the moment.  suspect something like

add method *	{telnet:24}	{ssh:19}

would be a good way to deal with it.
