Quite nice so far, thanks for asking.

One suggestion is to add a note about "-P" to the snort "nfq"
documentation -- snort will exit on something like "ping -s 2000" if you
use connection tracking with NFQUEUE otherwise.

Another thing that i'd like to see is support for unprivileged operation (setuid
while retaining CAP_NET_ADMIN), I tried to make this work without too
much hackery in daq, but failed. I'll send out an RFC patch later today; maybe
someone else has an idea how to make it work in a better fashion.
