clogin/*login does not have a way to alter the enable command.  afaik, other
commands will fail at lower privilege levels, so i'm not inclined to add the
feature now.

you'd have to create a clogin, rancid, and device type with new names;
example, clogin7, rancid7, cisco7 (rancid-fe script).  change rancid7
to use clogin7, change clogin7 to use the right enable command, add the
cisco7 type to rancid-fe, and change your router.db for the device to be
the cisco7 device type.
