I've considered it, to some extent, but in my case I figured it's best just
to look at snort's logs in a bit more detail before blocking things left
right & center.

Whatever automated solution you find, it *must*
a) allow me to specify some "must-not-block" networks/IP#s, eg upstream
b) allow me back in after a given amount of time
c) never block a valid user after a false alarm - just because my snort db
is filling up with `retransmission attempt's, it doesn't mean that every
IP# generating an alert wants blocking. (Yes, I've got some tweaking to
be doing :)
