Two options that I can come up with.

	1)  Use Barnyard, which is still in beta, to dump from the unified
logging format into the DB.
	2)  Configure fast or full alerts _along with_ the DB output.  Snort
can dump to two logging formats at the same time.  Just don't try this on a
Fat Pipe(tm).  You could also do post-processing of the data if you
wanted--log to binary and mysql, then come back over that at the end of the
night to dump out the full/fast alerts.

Hope that helps!
