[rancid] clogin that reads passwords from stdin

Hi, all!

We've disliked the idea that router passwords are stored on disk while clogin 
is being executed. Therefore, we wrote a small patch that allows clogin to 
read passwords from STDIN (with a "-f -" option). You might find this patch 

Example of usage:
some_prog_that_writes_cloginrc 2>/dev/null |clogin -f - -c "sh ver" device_name



Another minor thing -- I've found "term width 0" in clogin very useful.
