Perhaps manage this through a snort.conf setting?

output log_style: default or windows compatible

Could I get anyone to buy off on that?

A nicer way to treat this would be to leave the default but allow people
to override the printf formatting.  E.g., instead of:

sprintf(filename, "%i:%s", ...);

do something like:

char *default_logfilename_format = "%i:%s";
char *logfilename_format = default_filename_format;

	logfilename_format* = optstring;

sprintf(filename, logfilename_format...);
