How to use rfe to control the APC power distribution bars

(Most of) the power distribution bars in use in the Forum server room can have their outlets turned on and off under rfe control. This is done by editing a configuration file, similar to the way the switch configuration is done.

The bars mostly have names of the form sNN for switched controllable bars and uNN for unswitched bars. The corresponding configuration file is fpdu/sNN.outlets (for bars in the Forum; Appleton Tower bars could be brought into the scheme, but haven't been to date).

Each line on the configuration file takes the form

   outlet number outlet-name on-or-off
where number is as written on the bar, outlet-name is a label for the outlet and on-or-off should be either "on" to turn the outlet on or "off" to turn it off. The usual caveats about white space and avoiding tcl's metacharacters apply.

For example,

   ...
   outlet 22 fc10 on
   outlet 23 srslc02 on
   outlet 24 sr02+sr03 on
