Solution:  Learn about your clustering software.

In every cluster software that I've ever worked with (SunCluster and
Vertias Cluster), there is a script that runs when you need to start
services on the cluster when a node dies.  Simply have that script start
snort.  If the other node dies, you don't have to stop anything.  :)
