I am loading the new one (http-ext-identified-files). I completely removed the old script as well as its @load statement.

Here are the scripts of Seth's that I'm currently running:

@load dns-passive-replication
@load http-ext-identified-files
@load http-hash
@load known-hosts
@load known-services
@load logging.ftp-ext
@load logging.http-ext
@load logging.smtp-ext
@load logging.ssh-ext
@load smtp-ext-count-rejects
@load software-ext
@load ssh-ext
@load ssl-ext

I forgot to mention, the name of the policy for the file detection changed..
