As a data point, I've used Rancid with embedded "exits" with the -c command
and a bunch of semi-colons (like clogin -c "conf t; enable password
blah;exit;write mem") with no problem.  Perhaps it's parsing the -c options
differently than its internal control logic...dunno.  So far, though, I've
found that as long as the end result of my string of commands is enable mode
(not configure), rancid just handles it.
