Hi there

Says it all really. From an efficiency perspective, I really need to be
able to define things like

var HTTP_PORTS 80,3128,8080

so that single rules can trigger on HTTP traffic that is both direct,
and/or via a proxy. Currently this would involve converting something
like the 1217 web-*.rules into over 3.5K...

At the moment, I've had to turn tonnes of intranet rules from
$HTTP_PORTS to "any" to effect the same change more efficiently - but
now get whacked with tonnes of false positives on SMTP traffic (so now
I've changed "any" to "!25" - but you get the drift)

Any hint to when/if this feature will show up?
