I got as far as this bit in the lg_intro man page
  The looking glass offers a web based interface to routers to users
without their needing permission to login ...
and quit reading.  There's no web interface on the machine I want to
install rancid on and I really don't want a web based interface to
routers, much less a web based interface to routers to users without
permission to login.  Is the lookingglass a required part of rancid?
