rancid is the wrong tool for the job.  Rancid assumes one config file 
per device, and that single config file will provide a canonical backup 
of the entire system.  On Cumulus, you might have lots of different 
files and they might differ from site to site.

e.g. any backup system that works on linux (bacula, amanda.  All you 
really need is to back up /etc.
