[Bro] Bro and Snort together

We're running Bro and Snort in parallel, but we're using DAG cards to
duplicate streams to Bro and Snort processes, so our performance
characteristics are a bit different. In general, though, it really depends
on how you manage the traffic that you're throwing at both, and how many
rules you have enabled in Snort. It *is* possible to keep packet loss
manageable, running them in parallel, but you'll have to trim down what
you have Snort running.
