I'd support this approach too.  I think Sourcefire have done a great
job with making Snort professional, and they certainly are supporting the
Open Source track.

In fact, wherever customers are thinking of actually deploying Snort,
rather than just running it for testing or "fun", I think a fully
supported version would actually work out more cost effective.  It all
depends how you cost your time.

Disclosure: My company is a Sourcefire reseller, so I am biased towards them.
