Comment (by kreibich):

 Yeah, check out commit bc797f1. Basically, due to the fact that nowadays
 the connection record pulls in a whole bunch of stuff via redefs,
 Broccoli's lack for certain types caused a bunch of problems. I added
 enum, vector, and file types.

 We have one problem remaining: attributes with expressions, such as
 "&default=0", which would in principle require Broccoli to support parsing
 the whole expression hierarchy. That makes little sense, so we've added a
 capability bit that Broccoli now always sends upon handshake, and Bro will
 subsequently (once Robin tweaks the code) simply not send problematic
 objects to Broccoli peers.
