I'm glad to see the emphasis there Joel ;-)

FYI I implemented it here by getting our alerting script to call the
BASE interface (damned if I was going to figure out the SQL-foo to do
this!) to get the TEXT output from the pcap - and then fiddle that new
data into the alert

You don't need to tell me how horrendous that is - but it works ;-)

Please feel free to save me from going to coders-hell by doing it
natively ;-)
