I'd like to reinforce that we're definitely considering that, and ideas
are very welcome.

At the very minimum we'll work to make suricata snortsam compatible. But
it's very possible that we'll move some of that snortsam functionality
into the suricata engine itself under the IP Reputation umbrella.

Do you see more detailed or more expansive functionality that snortsam
of interest, or do you have more ideas there?
