MySQL in this case.  Table structures should be okay to mess with
as long as we don't delete anything, and the sensors can be done one
at a time, but I don't want all my sensors to croak just because I bounce
in a new db daemon. 

(eg, is the db logger code in snort smart enough to reconnect if the socket
closes? )

(Yeah, yeah, I can just test it by killing my db, can't i.. )
