that's understandable as well as fine and good but there are some environments 
that simply cannot (yet?) switch from oinkmaster for whatever corporate and/or 
local reasons there are...

one such reason that i'm aware, and i think i have talked with the pulledpork 
maintainer about it, is the merging of all rules files into one rules file... 
that is just not an option in our environment... management of individual rules 
sets via the snort.conf is much easier handled with the distributed multiple 
rules files... but this is quite possibly also a limitation of certain tools 
used to manage the rules sets... i've not dug deeper into it because of the 
corporate and local limits in place...
