So some extent I've tried that approach. It works until you need to flatten
the config of some remote device and it's default isn't your usual settings.
(Or some device loses it's brain..)

My method is to keep an up-to-date list of the default settings of each
type of device out there (along with the default uname/password).  In the
end, there's less resetting of port configs.
