If you have a cli access to the switches and can dump the config, then
it should be very possible to do with the switches. I've done that with
PaloAlto, the Fortinet Routers, and Ubiquiti stuff. It's not so hard.

Summary: If it doesn't work in Rancid, it's usually not hard to make it
work (again).
