Craig Smith has a Perl script in the contrib directory that analyzes
Snort logs and makes some guesses on OS's, it didn't work on my logs,
though, possibly it needs logs in a certain format? I wonder, could
someone incorporate this as a preprocessor? Even cooler would be if this
used Nmap's very extensive fingerprint database. 

I'd love to be able to look at my SnortSnarf page and see an "alerts by
Operating System" page... 

"Oh look! All the script kiddies have upgraded to Linux 2.4 now!" :)
