[Snort-sigs] Rule-set merging

I've been hacking through snort rule-sets by hand weeding out false positives.  Every time there's a new rule-set released, I've been doing this entire process of locating and weeding out the false positives again.  Has anyone out there scripted up a utility to merge rulesets?  ie: add in new rules to existing rules files without changing rules that have been modified or commented out?

This could probably be done semi-manually with diff, but I haven't bothered to try it.  How are folks dealing with this issue in general?  Am I missing something obvious?
