Yeah, that’s what I was thinking people would want/expect.

Part of the process of installing the tool could be

	echo @load bro-pkgs.bro >> $BRO_INSTALL_DIR/site/local.bro

Then the bro-pkgs.bro script just needs to be in BROPATH and the tool would automatically add/remove entries from it.  That special script can be maintained in the same place where the tool is maintaining all its installed packages.
