But we are wrapping everything in the Bro plugin architecture, right? I guess I I don’t think of plugins as necessarily binary, but maybe we shift nomenclature completely and start calling plugins packages across our documentation. But if we refer to the same thing as a plugin sometimes and a package other times, I think it gets even more confusing.

I like the idea of a CBAN list.
