We've considered getting rid of those extra files.  You have to understand the entire architecture too much to understand why they are there.  We ended up going in a direction where the distinctions between the types of processes are hidden from users because it can be too difficult to know when to use those different files.

The rule of thumb is to just put everything into local.bro or your own scripts that you load in local.bro.
