Have a look at sec.pl (Simple Event Correlation)at
www.estpak.ee/~risto/sec/. It will do some of the basic time-based event
correlation you're talking about, as well as multiple event relationships
(ie. surpress further out-of-limit events until an in-limit event occurs).
It can be configured to read from a pipe that Snort logs to.
