Robin Sommer created BIT-1449:

             Summary: Wrap Broker Bifs into script-level functions
                 Key: BIT-1449
                 URL: https://bro-tracker.atlassian.net/browse/BIT-1449
             Project: Bro Issue Tracker
          Issue Type: Problem
          Components: Bro
    Affects Versions: 2.4
            Reporter: Robin Sommer
             Fix For: 2.5

When working with Broker in Bro, one currently calls its bifs directly. That works just fine, but is a problem for documentation: the bifs are defined outside of the Broker framework, splitting the information across two places.

We should do here what other framework do: rename the Bifs to have internal-only names ({{__<name>}}) and then provide wrapper functions inside the framework that just forward to those internals ones.
