[Snort-users] var or ipvar?

var used to be used for most all var definitions... then work was being done for
IPv6 and ipvar was created... since then, it seems that ipvar has been retained
for all and var is simply no longer used...
is this accurate?
why is var not retained as an alias for ipvar? systems have been breaking all
around us and it is only just now that we're starting to find this possibly
being the problem :(
will it hurt to have both var and ipvar pointing to the same definitions??
will older snorts fall over because of ipvar being introduced into their
environment before they are ready for it?
