I can talk as Nessus co-maintainer. Stable uses have 
'nessus-update-plugins' just for this. It still can be improved (for 
example, it will not check GPG signatures for you), however.

As for Snort (which I will take over soon) I was considering providing 
oinkmaster [1] (or snortcenter) for a similar mechanism for rule updates.



PS: I will routinely backport versions to woody too, but that's off the 
main release.

[1] Thus closing #219996 which has not seen any change since November.
