I have a considerably larger collection of rules and phrases, but then

unfiltered forum, so I wrote a gawk script that builds rules from a set
of files, each containing the list(s) of terms that go into each rule.
This doesn't save any typing or testing, but the rule definition files,
which have one match term per line, are much easier to edit. You can
download the package and manpage, test data (think examples) and
installation instructions as a compressed tarball from here:
