Uhmm ..no at first development stage. I think it is very important to 
develop/integrate IPS Suricata's features with some firewalls. For example with these:

  - Iptables
  - PF based firewalls
  - CheckPoint
  - StoneGate
  - ┬┐Cisco ASA?

  Another interesting point to consider could be the integration of Suricata's logs 
and alerts under Management servers in the case of stonegate or checkpoint, for example.

  As an example, with stonesoft's SMC server this can be done using logging profiles 
for third party devices features, like stoneblog shows:

  - General url: http://stoneblog.stonesoft.com/stoneblog-community/files/
  - Cisco logging profile: 
  - Snort logging profile (using syslog): 
  - Sonicwall: 

  What do you think??
