[Bro] Bro -> Elasticsearch -> Kibana4beta -> GeoLocation

The funny thing is that elasticsearch stores the data internal
like the bro output is.

quote from the object document
Internally, this document is indexed as a simple, flat list of key-value pairs, something like this:

  "region":             "US",
  "manager.age":        30,
  "manager.name.first": "John",
  "manager.name.last":  "Smith"
Maybe this is an elasticsearch problem …
To make it all work ElasticSearch.cc <http://elasticsearch.cc/> has to change to do
the geopoint mapping. And maybe stop analyse strings like
user_agent to avoid chopping of the result in the first word.
This could be solved by using url formatted strings you want
to show in graphs etc (no spaces).
The last thing is some naming collisions elasticsearch is 
confused about, like version in ssh & socks, but thats easy
to change in their main scripts.
