The netscaler module was contributed; I know nothing of them myself.  But,
it would appear that it does expect a root sheel, since it runs these

        'cat /etc/ns.conf'
        'get log setting'

I guess you are saying that the new software provides some kind of CLI, thus
the nslogin script will likely need a bit of work along with the nsrancid
