yeah, i wish they'd use other category filenames for GID 3 rules instead of 
using the same ones GID 1 uses... perhaps they should prefix those category 
filenames and MSG texts with SO_ to make it more obvious? there are times that 
GID:3 just gets lost in sight...

simply put, you cannot... you need the source code and that is not available to 
the general public, AFAIK...
