i'm happy to rename the foundry scripts and convert them to the rancid
3.0-style; but someone will have to help test as I no longer have this

the brocadelogin script folks sent to me looks like a mix of flogin and
clogin.  If i've coalesced all the comments together, that script works
for fabricos & ironware (at least some versions thereof).  Do I have this

but the brocaderancid script is for fabricos, given the command set?

        {'chassisShow'  => 'ChassisShow'},
        {'firmwareShow' => 'FirmwareShow'},
        {'version'      => 'FirmwareShow'},
        {'zoneshow'    => 'FirmwareShow'},
        {'portcfgshow' => 'FirmwareShow'},
        #{'fosConfig --show'            => 'Fosconfig'},
        {'ipAddrShow'           => 'IpAddrShow'},
       {'licenseShow'   => 'LicenseShow'},
        {'domainsShow'          => 'DomainsShow'},
        {'configupload -force -all -l config.txt'       => 'ConfigShow'},
        {'configShow -l config.txt'             => 'ConfigShow'}

and, i received scripts from another user today that I have not looked
through yet.
