none are currently supported.  as mentioned in a recent thread, its possible
that a script could, for example, tftp a config from a device, copy that
config to (or compile multiple tftp'd files int) router.db_devicename.raw,
then treat the like rancid does for the NOPIPE option (see rancid.conf(5)).
