 Sending data to the Intel::seen function has implicit overhead and I
 wanted it to be optional if someone chooses to send data to it.  My
 personal rule is that loading a framework from base/ shouldn't have any
 implicit overhead (other than loading the code into memory).  We probably
 should go ahead and add that policy load into the local.bro script though
 since that would give back the magic. :)

 Hm, that variable isn't in the code anymore (it was old).

 It's internal to the framework for doing minimal data matches.  Users
 should never know about it.

 Did you update?  I removed all of those tests.

 I think you may be trying to merge an older version of my code.
