In previous posts regarding logging output, it was noted by some that
Snort apparently has an undocumented output plugin called
"log_ascii", which is the default logging facility if none other is
specified.  And supposedly one can add the option "output log_ascii"
to the snort.conf file to re-enable the ASCII logging facility along
side other logging facilities (e.g., output database: log, ...).  

However, when I specify this plugin in my snort.conf file, both Snort
1.8.6 and 1.8.7 return the following warning when started:  

    *WARNING*: unknown output plugin "log_ascii", ignoring!

Is this output plugin something new to Snort 1.9.x or something else?
