[rancid] A method to download 3com baseline switches configuration

...I read that someone asking for a method to download such a configuration 
was answered that many 3com switches uses a web driven configuration menu
This is true, but I noticed that in my 3com entry level switches (bls2948) 
there is a "download configuration" button.
The configuration is called always "3comranger48.cfg" and is a text file....

I wrote a perl script that is able to download the configuration miming an 
http session.
It Is a real custom script but I think it can be a proof of concept one to 
raise kind of devices monitored by rancid (and other opensource monitor 
applications of course).

Hope this help,
