[rancid] microtik problems

Thanks for the hint (and the script).  I wound up with the following
working configuration:

add password core-5 YourPasswordHere
add user core-5 username+ct
add method core-5 ssh
add sshcmd core-5 {/usr/local/scripts/microtiklogin.sh}
add noenable core-5 {1}

sshcmd apparently doesn't handle spaces well, so I had to use an
external script.  The sshcmd script is just:

exec ssh -p 2222 $@

I guess that the SSH username part of mtlogin doesn't add +ct
