 Folks that have worked with HTTP in that past might intuitively expect to
 extract the value of the `Referer` header by using the same field in the
 bro log, namely `referer`. The current naming scheme departs from this
 intuition and uses `referrer` as the field name in `http.log`. What about
 renaming this field to `referer`?
