Let me narrow that down.  Assume that no command line options or 
snort.conf options are used to change the order in which rule actions 
are taken, and that rule processing ends after the first hit.  
Basically, I want to know if changing the physical order of two drop 
rules with the same priority in my local.rules file makes a difference, 
or if there's some other default sort order that takes precedence.
