[quagga-dev 1438] Thoughts about vtysh

I cleaned vtysh a little bit, walked through code and here are some more 
thoughts I would like to do with vtysh now:

1) Remove vtysh_user.c from compilation for now. There is no any point to 
authenticate users in vtysh at the moment. It may even give users false 
sense that it gives them some extra security. It doesn't - only permissions 
of files in localstatedir matter.

2) Bugzilla #104. Bring vty related commands into vtysh. It gives users the 
way to configure vty related stuff in all daemons at once (like other 
similar stuff in vtysh -log config etc). But does it make sense really?

3) Make enable node default in vtysh.

4) Not really vtysh stuff, but all nodes have "write *" commands. No point 
IMHO and we have "do <enable_node_command>" for that. Cli commands in 
general needs cleaning anyway, this would be start.
