I've discussed it with Alex a bit but one of my next ideas for the Rules 
QA process is the following:

- we measure and report on metrics for the rules that are promoted such 
as rank (existing), computational expense, time spent on rule.
- this information is then included with the rules update in a machine 
readable manner
- more (all?) rules are added to the tar ball
- sa-update is changed to use thresholds for rank, expense, time so an 
administrator runs sa-update with the specific parameters creating a 
more customized rule installation per server

This let's us start putting more rules in there and let administrators 
cater to their desires/hardware/etc.

The defaults with sa-update for thresholds would give the same updates 
based on the existing thresholds used now.
