Description

This request came up at Suricon2018, but has come up before. The idea is to turn much of Suricata into a library that can be reused in other tools.

The first step would be to define some of the use cases we'd like to initially support so that an API could be designed for that.

Use cases :
- Have packets from some other source
- Have some already reassembled stream (SSL proxy)
- Have a very dynamic way to tell which packet which should be handled by this config/ruleset (complexity from global variables), have some way for tenants to remove certain categories, or have a finite set of precompiled rulesets and have a plugin be able to tell which ruleset should be used for each packet
- Have packet returned with metadata like the alerts it has

Idea to persist precompiled ruleset
