 It should be possible to not give bro-cut any fields to cut out to get
 everything passed through but still convert timestamps.  This is
 particularly relevant due to the removal of cf from the base distribution
 and especially makes sense in light of logs that are self descriptive so
 not limited to timestamps in the first column.

 This should work:

 cat conn.log | bro-cut -d

 Since bro-cut is basically just an awk program anyway, this should work
 too (it would be relatively easy to add, right?):

 cat conn.log | bro-cut -c id.orig_h=

 I'm using "-c" above as "condition".  This may be too much for now though,
 the all fields timestamp thing is important though (due to lack of cf).
