This version constitutes a major rewrite of the rule reading, modification
and writing system to improve speed, future module addition, supportability,
and of course reliability.

New Features/changes:

   - Enablesid
   - Moved all .conf files under etc/
   - Ability to define sid ranges in any of the sid modification .conf files
   - Ability to specify references in any of the sid modification .conf
   - Ability to ignore entire rule categories (i.e. not include them)
   - Specify locally stored rules files that need their meta data included
   in sid-msg.map
   - All rulestate modifications, comparisons etc.. are now handled
   - Rewrite of sid-msg.map generation code to allow for all proper
   character reading and addition to sid-msg.map
   - No longer reliant on tar binary, now using Archive::Tar
   - Ability to specify your arch for so_rules
   - Added significant amounts of debug output when an error is detected
   - Rules are now written to only two distinct files

Bug Fixes:

   - Properly account for whitespace in non-standard rulesets such as ET
   - Cleaned up and improved the changelog to display new / deleted sids and
   rule totals
   - Certian conditions caused the md5 check to fail even when valid - This
   was primarily an ET issue, but did manifest on VRT rulesets also
   - Many small fixes that were not tracked well :-P
   - Do not overwrite local.rules, but still include in sid-msg.map
