I have no problem with that and I apologize if I came across as trying to 
"suggest policy" to the Bro development team.  I merely wanted to point out 
that my reasons come from long, hard-won experience.

As long as a (security tool, in particular) project has a style and enforces 
it, that's what matters.  Consistency makes everyone's life much easier when 
they go through the code.
