It would not take two months, but new features I would like
to see in Snort would include the ability to load/unload rules
without having to SIGHUP the Snort process. Also, a system
similar to Symantec LiveUpdate where Snort would check for
updated rulesets and reload them on the fly. I realize that
this same functionality can be duplicated with perl scripts
(works fine). It would just be nice to have it integrated.
