I see that you understand the goal here.  Ultimately it would be a highly
useful feature in snort.  thanks

Nope.  No thresholding of any type.

Now, there is a possible workaround...

Use swatch and it's 'throttle' option.  That will perform almost as you
want.  Then once that threshold is done, have swatch cause a very specific
alert that actually generates the data you want.
