The convention we've used is that there's a file hostname.domain.tld.bro
(e.g., watcher.lbl.gov.bro) which corresponds to the specific config that's
running on the host hostname.domain.tld.  This will for example load a
specific set of anlayzers and redef "interfaces" to match the particular
hardware used by the host.
