> Is it possible to pass specific commands to rancid-run for rancid to execute?  I have a requirement to use all the features of rancid, (svn version storage etc.), but for ad-hoc queries.  I understand one can alter the @commandtable and select a specific set of commands to run, but that selection is constant each time rancid-run is called.  What I'm looking for is adding the names of the specific commands to run from a command line initiation of rancid-run.  Something like this below;
> "rancid-run -r <device name> <group name> [list of commands]"
> "rancid-run -r ABC123 MyLocalGroup 'show version', 'show boot', 'show vlan'"

no, but in 3.0 you will be able to easily define your own rancid groups.
