Has anyone attempted this in the past? I can't see anything on the roadmap for Suricata, though I did see that re2 libraries are in C++ and Suricata is in straight C but I figure with time I may be able to work around this via wrappers etc. 

I has been discussed a few times, but as far as I know no one really
attempted it.
