	You could write a little progie to read from a unix socket and
configure snort to write alerts to /dev/snort. Snort supports UNIX
socket loggin (experimental), with -A unsock.
	Maybe you could modify the spo_alert_unixsock.c or write another output
plugin to write to a socket. Also create a server to listen for
connections from this output plugin.
	Output the signature name, source ip and destination ip.

See ya!
