It's not a case of Cisco copying Dell or vice versa - they've both 
bought the same switching platform from Marvell. I am sure that it's 
more than just Dell and Cisco selling it, for that matter.

Need a wiki page of what-equipment-masquerades-as-what, or a repository 
of sample device configs that some clever algorithm can compare and spit 
out a similarity %age.  Paste your config into it and it tells you which 
backend to use.
