a binary look at file (using beav) seems to indicate it keeps logs and
alerts, so, yes, snort will put both in (i think) however, there is no way
for me to double check this.  Daemon mode, one shot mode, special,
specific barnyard.conf in one shot mode fails to produce any 'alerts' form
log.* baryard unified files.
