you can have a .cloginrc like:

add user glob foo
add user method foo
add user other bar
	.... and so on, but without 'add password'
include {/home/you/.clpasswds}

where /home/you/.clpasswds has:
add password glob a b
	... and so on.

then in your scenario you just create the latter.

[ it would be nice if vendors would store ssh keys like junos, so you could
  use ssh-agent ]
