aurule would need to be able to increase the backlog limit and set failure 
mode in order to handle the capp rules that is part of the package. So, you 
wouldn't really gain much.

auditctl has a very simple mission. Load, delete, and list rules. Nothing 
else. It will not be growing in the future other than to accommodate new rule 
syntax. I would like to get rid of the "-t" option as I feel it doesn't fit 
what auditctl should do.

I guess when you think about it, auditctl is aurule.
