I think it's a bad idea to have script code in local.bro (besides
"@load") because it will not be updated when a user upgrades to a
newer release of Bro.  Also, the fact that it's commented-out by
default means it's not going to be tested, and most likely nobody
will notice (for a while) when something else changes that breaks
that code.

Perhaps instead we could put something in scripts/policy/misc/ (or
somewhere else?), and then @load that from local.bro (the @load
would be commented-out by default).
