[rancid] Grab the f5 UCS file and check it into CVS

Yes, it's a compressed file.  I'm not looking to check it in to CVS.  Perhaps just add something to the script to grab it and store the last 7 days worth.   This might not even be remotely related to rancid, but thought I'd pose the question here before diving into scripting this myself.

the ucs files appear to be gzip'ed tarballs.

$ file f5-backup-12Jun2015-0301.ucs
f5-backup-12Jun2015-0301.ucs: gzip compressed data, was "configsync-2.0-1-Linux-2.6.1816", from Unix, last modified: Fri Jun 12 03:01:06 2015, max speed

Is there any way Rancid can grab the UCS file from an f5 and then store that in CVS?  I'm sure I can figure out a way to issue the command.  But I'm not sure how to dump it (is it even in text?) and then store it into CVS.
