[rancid] Cisco ASA Backup with Preshared Keys

I use rancid to backup all of my configurations, including two Cisco ASA
5520's.  The only problem I have run into is that when rancid backs up
the configs on the ASA, the actual preshared keys are displayed as an
asterisk (*) rather than the actual preshared key.


Is there a way to get rancid to backup the actual config file?  I assume
it's just doing a screen scrape (sh running-config) and capturing the
output rather than copying the actual file.  This is fine for most
equipment, but if I have a failure on the ASA and needed to restore the
config, I would have to re-enter all the preshared keys (not fun with
several hundred tunnels).


Any help is greatly appreciated,


Jeremy Keys
