If we're talking IOS specifically, most other boxes do not have any magic
marker for end-of-config. And many of these boxes, would work with
'cisco' style rancid just by removing end-of-config check.
 Anyhow, I'm not going to argue about. I'm happy with what rancid
does today, as it's easy for me to hack the check away when needed,
but it seems for some it seems to be big problem.
