    This is actually what I originally hoped to do, but there seemed to 
be a stumbling block with Bro not forwarding events, so I was curious 
about the option of playing with things on the Bro side.

    Is there any sample code that shows how you would setup a generic 
handler that has access to the event name and argument count/types?
