I'm not sure what third-party tool you're using or what's stored in your
database, but there's a little tool bundled with the SnortSP beta that
converts unified2 files directly into pcaps. It's in the src/tools/u2boat
directory. If you're logging in Unified2, it'll save you the trouble of
trying to convert that to text suitable for text2pcap. Can't help you with
the scripting magic, though. :)

You can download SnortSP here: http://www.snort.org/dl/snortsp/
