Curious, what's the method to disable a singular GID3 rule without need to do a 
suppression?  Simply comment out the stub in $SO_RULE_PATH for the SID, which is 
GID3, that you want to disable?  I've got a few GID3's that are "map the 
network" in my environment that I'd like to not incur the processing hit.

I tried commenting out the rule, for example, SID 13947 GID 3, to no avail.  It 
still fires.  Am I missing something?
