On a cluster, only the manager is doing the logging, so in that regard
it doesn't make much of a difference. Generally, a client/server setup
is fine for logging.

I think it would be best to maintain this an external plugin, to avoid
introducing further dependencies into the Bro build. As a plugin, it
should work fine, and if you want, we can include it into our
small-but-growing plugin repository: https://github.com/bro/bro-plugins
(which, btw, has a ElasticSearch writer already, which might be 
useful as a starting point).
