Absolutely - my script won't be able to pull attach signatures out of thin
air. Basically it will make a new buch of "signatures" that are merely port
number/acl number matches.

The only "proper" way of doing what people want here is to put in another
Ethernet card connected to the same hub (or monitored switch) as the former,
put no IP address on it and run snort on that.
