> Optional fields in records are currently returned in a record with type BRO_TYPE_UNKNOWN. The Bro serialization protocol uses a NULL pointer instead. To streamline the two interfaces, it thus makes more sense to return a NULL pointer in 
> {noformat}
> bro_rec_get_nth_val()
> {noformat}
> instead of an empty field instance.
