[Bro] Request: summarize-connections and email

I don't want to disable the scan summaries; they can be useful. I just want to disable the emails of them. I can still see them in the log hierarchy if I want to.

Adding a line "TraceSummary=" to broctl.cfg (i.e., clearing that
option) should disable them.
