if you would maintain a separate conf file that has all the rules enabled in it, 
then why not just make the sid-msg.map file go ahead and contain them all to 
start with like it was "in the olden days"?? why limit the ones in the file to 
only those that are in used rules files and enabled? the software that uses the 
sid-msg.map file doesn't care that the rules aren't used or enabled any more 
when it has entries for them in the logs or database already ;)
