[rancid] F5 bigpipe shell user

Hello all,

I'm new with rancid, so please forgive any naivety!

I'm trying to setup rancid to access a F5 3600 LTM running 10.2.  The
account that rancid uses is a limited account, it's Role is "guest" and it's
terminal access is set to "bigpipe shell".  It's basically a read-only
account that can only list the config.  The prompt that this user gets is
"bp>".  Currently the only command I need to run is "b list".

Does rancid version 2.3.4 support this out of the box? Or do I need to edit
something outside of .cloginrc and router.db?

Would I be better off abandoning this approach and just allow the user full
shell access, i.e. root with a "user at hostname ~ #" prompt?

FWIW, I do have rancid working fine with other Cisco and Juniper devices.
