It'd be easier to parse if all the options were together:

[handling][modifier(s)] [filespec]


A - allow
  L - log
  N - notify
M - mangle
  L - log
  N - notify
S - strip
  Q - quarantine (default discard)
  L - log
  N - notify
P - poison (default notify)
  L - log

AL *.jpg
ML *.doc
SQN *.double.extension
S *.cvf
