The thing is I don't get why reads only need to be propagated once per
(half) &read_expire interval (see
https://github.com/bro/bro/blob/master/src/Val.cc#L2326). If there was a
read at the beginning of the (half) interval and another one close to
the end, a peer might expire a value too early based on the first read.
Seems someone put some thought into this so maybe I miss something here :)
