This might be a more complicated solution than you're looking for,
but check out Sguil (www.sguil.net).  It captures PCAP in addition to
snort alerts (and network session logs as well), so when you're
examining an event, you can easily reference the PCAP data for the
entire network session, not just the single packet which caused the
alert.  If you're ready to start looking at PCAP, you might as well
go whole hog with it.
