I forgot to mention one more point.  It was pretty slow because of the internal architecture of Yara and I had started reworking a bit of Yara to fix the problem (compiling rule sets is slow and they mix rule match state with the compiled rule structure so you can't match multiple files concurrently with the same compiled rule set).

Is there anyone out there interested in taking on this rework and pushing it to completion? (you need to know C)
