[rancid] Making variant of cisco ios

I have some old cisco ACE devices and have been backing them up with rancid using the normal "cisco" module.

I want to add some commands like "show ft group summary" for example, and have the output of those commands show up in rancid diffs, prefixed with exclamation points in the same way that normal "show version" output is.

I've done this before by copying a device type definition from /etc/rancid.types.base to /etc/rancid.types.conf and editing it, but in the past I was always removing troublesome commands, not adding new ones.

Is there an existing module that I can reference in /etc/rancid.types.conf that simply takes the output from a command and prefixes exclamation points, no fancy special processing?  Or do I need to write one?
