[rancid] Palo Alto Configuration Backup

We ran into a lot of issues trying to restore PAs from text configs.

First of all, we have never been able to completely configure a Palo Alto from the CLI so we have always at least had to clean/finish things up in the GUI.

We also found some issues at the CLI with the firewalls not taking some of the commands as they show up in show config.

AFAIK PAN does not have an automated configuration backup.  Panorama has the capability but I can't remember if it can be automated.

We use RANCID with PAs mainly to keep configurations consistent and to create informational webpages from the saved configs and command output.
