clogin for Avaya Pxxx series switches?

I've been using RANCID and clogin very successfully on all my Cisco routers.  However,
there are a large gaggle of Avaya P580, P550, P330, P130, and P120 switches on my network
that I would like to track and archive their configurations.  I realize the Avaya P330 and
lower switches have a very un-Cisco like syntax, but the Avaya P550 and P580 series
(originally derived from the DEC/Prominet P550) switches have a command flow for viewing
the switch configuration that is very similar to a Cisco router (except for the logout
sequence, which is exit/exit instead of logout).

I was wondering if any readers of this list have attempted to adapt clogin or one of its
RANCID brethren to work on any of these classes of Avaya switches.
