Alas, hardly any of the nifty new features that I've contributed to RANCID
have made it into the official release yet.  However, looking at 2.3.2a5,
I see that hunk#3 in my patch was integrated, since that portion was
a fix to an obscure bug.

So the answer is yes, if you want the feature for defining arbitray
connection methods.  If you have any problems applying or using
the patch, please contact me off-list.
