Hi,

I am trying to use snortsam to integrate snort to checkpoint firewall, 
and I found that I have to use its output plugin in recompiling whole 
source way, in the Makefile of output plugin, I found that all plugins 
is archived as `.a'. That puzzled me, is there any reason not to use the 
output plugin as `.so' and provides some dynamical loading method to 
avoid the re-compile? What I think is flexibility is helpful.

Thanks.
