Yes, those rules use some recent kernel functionality in order to cover all 
the requirements. Those recent kernel updates are in the RHEL5 kernels and 
should work. They will take some re-engineeing to get working on RHEL4.

On RHEL4, you can only use keys on the file watches. RHEL5 you can use them on 
both syscall and file watches.

The change log

- Update time handling for ausearch and aureport to add more keywords
- Fix the ausearch on keyword to tolerate records with no key (#402941)
- num_logs option wasn't working right on shifts (#325561)
- In auditd, resume logging on SIGUSR2 (#325561)
- ausearch needed update for escaped acct fields (#353241)
- Fix parsing filterkeys in fs_watch records

So, this has some fixups for using keys.
