So, how many different O/S's does brocade have?  FabricOS, what else?

I've cleaned-up the brocadelogin script a little bit and imported it as
brlogin.  This could probably be cleaned-up further, remove ExtremeOS-specific
stuff etc, but I have nothing to test against.

> Comparing Howard's version of the script to mine, I see a few differences, one of which may be a modification I made. Instead of using configShow directly, my script uses configUpload -all and saves it to a local file on the switch, followed by configShow -l to display that file. I think this yields a more complete configuration similar to what one would use to back up the switch via ftp.
