i think hlogin would be the one to use, to avoid screen handling output.
but I havent fooled with the idea much.

nope; we discussed it a bit, but thats as far as we'd gone.
frankly, netbsd has daily/weekly/monthly/security scripts that are quite
nice and useful. one thing the security script does is use a changelist
file for a list of files it will backup and each file is separate vs being
rolled into one as rancid would do, and it sends diffs of the files, a
few of which it will "filter", and the backups are then local to the
machine (which seems both positive and negative).
this is one solution, not within rancid, but might be useful in combination.
