    [ https://bro-tracker.atlassian.net/browse/BIT-1125?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=15315#comment-15315 ] 

Robin Sommer commented on BIT-1125:

Agree with Jon, I think we want the option, it just feels unnecessary to pass through script-land in cases where there's really no question on how to compute the handle. I don't think that's actually different from other low-level decisions analyzers sometimes make on how to process something without asking script-land for its opinion. 

Also, analyzers can document whether they offer any customization.

I think I'll rename {{cached_id}} to {{precomputed_id}} then make it cover both cases.

(and I would like to have a document eventually that summarizes the options an analyzer have :-)
