If i got it right the snort output plugins are't multithreaded, witch make snort block if e.g. 
his database is not reachable.
I know there are several projects trying to workaround this problem (barnyard, FLoP ...)
but they suffer from several disadvantages.

Now my question: are these output plugins planed to be redesinged as seperate threads?

Thanks!
Jost
