It will only be in the HEAD branch of snort and not in 1.8.4.  1.8.4
is bugfixes over 1.8.3 and not new features.  We're going to be
pushing the stable branch on the backburner and only fix bugs while
all the new fun stuff goes into the development branch.

It's there but only in the development branch
