I must admit, that one is my fault. It is a product of having working
code long ago, changing some of our routers to autoenable for some
account and realizing I needed to update rancid to match. It was how my

The more thinking they do for me, the more mistakes can get hidden.
This one, however, is a bit overkill in hindsight.
