[quagga-dev 3476] ripd authentication cant be unset

It's impossible to not have ripd do authentication presently. The 
default is simple authentication (even if no key is set). See:


which makes noauth the default unless authentication is actually 

It changes behaviour slightly though. In order to be perfectly 
backwards compatible we would have to extend ip rip auth, eg:

   ip rip authentication noauth

but that seems quite silly. Also, anyone who relied on simple being 
the default should just be able to 'write file' and have a 
forward-compatible configuration file written out, /before/ 

What say?

If at first you don't succeed, redefine success.
