Maybe a way to pass the locations of the configs for each box 
individually? The RANCID interface is nice and I wouldnt mind making a 
list of each file to be backed up for each box, as most of it would be 
copy paste. Also if you do everything from ports (like a good little 
UNIX user) all your configs should be in /etc and /usr/local/etc, 
backing up anything.conf in all those directories would cover 99% of the 
applications out there.
