All the grunt work is there for running commands and interpreting output 
for Comware (3/4/7), incorporated into the comware support I have.  
However extra commands require to be issued for the models that initially 
have this limited CLI to get to the full CLI.  In order to know to execute 
them, extra information needs to be provided for the cmwlogin script, and 
I think it was that part that required me to do a local hack, and that's 
the part that my memory is most hazy on.  It needs to be recalled, 
extracted, and fed back as a patch (assuming there isn't a neater way of 
doing it) against something rather more up to date than the rancid3 
version I'm currently running.
