The way I'd suggest we go, first we elaborate XML format for snort, then will
code up parser for this (which we could probably extend into two-way converter for
old and new rules <xml>-->internal representation, and internal representation-->old-format and visa-versa.. or something,
althrough for converter I'd stick with perl, easier to code up :))
