[rancid] Netscreen/OpenSSH interaction problem

I've found myself inheriting responsibility for a stack of Netscreen
boxes, and of course I want their configurations backed up.

There's a problem with interactions between newer versions of OpenSSH
and Netscreens, however.  To SSH into a Netscreen with newer OpenSSH,
you must add the option "-o ControlMaster=auto" to the SSH command

Is there any way to pass this option to the Rancid SSH command for my
Netscreen hosts?
