i've used rule2alert and it does do exactly what it says it does... however, 
what it does not do, at least at the time of my testing, is to create a pcap 
that is "larger" than the rule's requirements for testing...

in other words, it creates exactly what the rule is looking for and nothing 
more... in my case, i needed additional pcaps that carried traffic "larger" than 
the specifics but that still contained the specifics... if that makes any sense 
at all...
