If they're all in BROPATH, that means it's possible for scripts/packages in one directory to overshadow equivalently named ones in another directory. e.g. this makes it hard for one to create an "protocols/http" package that exists in all 4 dirs, which seems like a reasonable use to me. Is there a specific path ordering or naming convention that can deal with this?
I think I'd probably like for the default BROPATH to just contain the $prefix/share/bro.
