RANCID on Ciscos with autocmd

Is there any way to make RANCID be happy on Ciscos with a login
account that has 'autocmd show running-config' ? I am a bit wary about
hardcoding a username and password that has privilege 15 access.

Alternatively, does anyone have a config snippet that lowers all the
'show run' bits down to a more useable level? All my attempts with
privilege exec end up in 'show run' simply displaying a blank config.

How do others deal with this problem? I assume like me most people are
using some sort of strong authentication and don't normally allow
password-only accounts.

Thanks in advance,
