Thanks! :) I tested a few device types and it seems like I can use
dnos9. I added this to rancid.types.conf:
dnos9fs;script;rancid -t dnos9fs
dnos9fs;command;dnos9::ShowVersion;show version
dnos9fs;command;dnos9::ShowBoot;show boot
dnos9fs;command;dnos9::ShowChassis;show system
dnos9fs;command;dnos9::ShowVLAN;show vlan all
dnos9fs;command;dnos9::WriteTerm;show running-config

Seems to give me what I need. The output is quite "airy"(as in lots of
empty lines ), but so is the output from show running-config on the
actual switch.
