> 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.
