Yup, unless it's a version 5, in which case it would be ciscowlc5.  The only difference is that 'show running-config' (version 4) has been moved to 'show run-config commands' in version 5.  Pretty sure with basic version check, the proper command file could be parsed.

Place wlogin, ciscowlc, and ciscowlc5 in your bin directory of the RANCID install.  Then add the following two lines to your $PREFIX/bin/rancid-fe file:

    'cisco-wlc'         => 'ciscowlc',
    'cisco-wlc5'         => 'ciscowlc5',

That should be it.
