Even the CVS version of ACID does not currently support 
snort 1.8 classifications or priorities.  However, this functionality
is very high on the TODO list.

I'm not sure what you mean by this.  If the database plugin
is configured to log the "alert" facility, then the portscans
alert messages will appear just like any other alerts.  However,
the observation that pre-processor logging is clumsy is correct.
Future versions of Snort will have improved pre-processor
logging, but this will not occur in the 1.8 release.
