The reasoning is simple, there is no reliable way, other than using a known
trusted url identification to determine the source of the rules.  Consider
the case of ETPRO rules vs VRT rules, there are sids that match, the
contained filenames match exactly, and you  may have changed the source
tarball name when you put it on your custom server url...  I will likely (in
the next major release) make that a configurable option.. such as
rule_url=<url>|<filename>|<oinkcode>|<prependname> or something...

Oh, 0.6.1 is up and has your fix in it...
