w/o creative AAA, you have to have enable to get the config, so
rancid expects that, ie: a prompt ending in #.  That will be one
problem, that will need to be (for the moment) hacked in rancid.

there may other cmds run by rancid that also require privs.

			 ^ you need a value here for the config parser, 1.
			   sorry, the manpage is wrong and the code doesnt
			   handle this well --- added to the todo list.
