Replacing netsniff-ng with anything else is possible here, but I don't 
feel like I need it - SO has a great integration between pcap agent, 
ELSA and Bro. I can go to ELSA, find the flow I need and request a 
transcript - simple and very effective.

As for the metadata and data about my flows, content, protocol decoders, 
scripting - I would not change Bro for a 1024 kg of pure gold, if that's 
what you are asking :)
