>             Project: Bro Issue Tracker
>          Issue Type: Problem
>          Components: Bro
>    Affects Versions: 2.4

>            Assignee: Daniel Thayer
>             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.
