I like this idea. Will put a rule in the bleeding snort rulesets.

But I'd think 800 or 1000 connections per source would be more 
appropriate. What does everyone think there?

My goal is to have a rule that's appropriate for both medium and large 
sites. Small sites would have to adjust to fit their own needs.
