Robin Sommer created BIT-1243:

             Summary: topic/robin/pktsrc
                 Key: BIT-1243
                 URL: https://bro-tracker.atlassian.net/browse/BIT-1243
             Project: Bro Issue Tracker
          Issue Type: New Feature
          Components: Bro
            Reporter: Robin Sommer

This moves packet sources and dumpers over to the new dynamic plugin infrastructure. 

By default, Bro still supports just pcap for either, but other formats can now be added externally as well. A user choses a different format by specifying  a corresponding prefix with the -r or -i options (e.g., "-i netmap:eth0") While the builtin pcap supports remains the default, one can select it explicitly via its "pcap" prefix (e.g., "-r pcap:my.trace").

This branch is in bro, bro-aux, and cmake. 

Further changes included:

- Removal of the "secondary path".
- Removal of NeFflow support. We can bring this back, but need to decide where it should hook in now.
- Various smaller tweaks to the plugin infrastructure and skeleton.
