Jon Siwek commented on BIT-1270:

Whether to pass by value and whether to use ValWrapper vs. std::pair seem like separate issues/suggestions?

I'd also make the suggestion to pass by value.  Whether that value is ValWrapper or std::pair I don't have a good feel for without reviewing the code more.  Maybe std::pair if it's used infrequently else ValWrapper just to be able to chose the names of the fields (reading/writing code that uses "x.first" and "x.second" can get confusing for me personally).

(And std::tuple is C++11, right?  Did we decide that's generally ok to use in Bro now?)

> This branch makes a few changes to the API:
> * Wraps values in a simple class (ValWrapper) that include an explicit processed / not processed flag (to avoid confusion with delayed / opaque invocations).
> * Adds a Frame argument to HookCallFunction
> * Adds support for Frame argument types to HookArgument
> * Adds support for ValWrapper argument types to HookArgument
> * Tweaks the plugin.hooks tests a bit to include new output (from additional argument)
> * Tweaks the plugin.api-version-mismatch to remove explicit home directory path via simple regex
