That doesn't work with pulledpork at least, it still appends the 
detected version of the locally installed Snort binary to the URI. 
Probably good for a feature request for PP to be able to starting using 

JJ, does that sound like a good idea (using snort-edge) to help users 
get around the issue of registered users upgrading Snort before a 
registered rulepack is available for them due to the 30 day lag of rules 
from subscriber to registered user?
