FYI, when Oinkmaster finds duplicate SIDs in the downloaded package it 
will keep the one with the highest 'rev' and discard the other(s), 
that's why you can't find any duplicates when grepping the result.
It would be nice if Sourcefire did some simple automated check so 
duplicate SIDs never get published in the first place though.
