FWIW, I've also observed a significant decrease in CPU load on the
manager parent process as displayed by 'broctl top'.  The workers still
report high utilization, but the manager seems to be largely unaffected.
 Without Seth's policy changes in local.bro I would see a spike in CPU
load on the manager whenever any worker was under heavy load.
