I have been mulling over how an API for a new communication library
could look like. In short, the idea is to (1) overhaul Bro's current
communication model to make it more flexible and easier to control;
and (2) provide the new functionality in the form of a C library that
replaces Broccoli yet will also be used by Bro itself (i.e., we;ll no
longer have two independent implementations of the same protocol to
maintain).

Draft is here:

Feedback welcome.
