[rancid] rancid and radius auth with restricted perms

 I have been using rancid for a while on our core network equipment.
I'd like to add a bunch of access layer switches ( 2960s/3560s) to my
rancid setup.  Very few people have access to my core equipment so I
have not had the need to set up tacacs/radius/kerberos auth.  Does
anyone have a cookie cutter radius ( freeradius) config to restrict a
rancid user to the minimum required commands to function?  (I can setup
the radius part, it is the command restriction that is stumping me)

I googled around and looked through my list archives, but could not find
much info.  The closest I could find was
http://wiki.freeradius.org/Cisco#Command_Authorization where the
restrict 'show' was broken by cisco.

Thanks for any help.
