But wouldn't it be easier just to add the "IDS" into sp_reference.h
because it NEVER changes. Unless you are not always going to use
"IDS###" ? Because if its NOT going to change, I think it should be
included in the header so we can reduce rule file size(which is growing
Cause it would save us 3 characters PER rule times 500 rules is 1500
characters saved!
But its upto you, I know you got alot of new features coming out soon
and you have the bigger "Vision" of what you want ArachNIDS to be and
how you want it to work. 
Its already the best IDS db on the net, can't wait to see what you got
in store for us next! :)
