[Oisf-users] Indexing alert packet contents?

I currently syslog alerts to a central server for storage.  To store 
packet contents, I write alert-debug to a unix socket on the sensor and 
read it with a perl script that does some filtering, writes the alerts 
to disk, and manages log rotation.  I'd really like to use this new 
elasticsearch fanciness to get indexed searches of packet contents with 
a pretty Kibana interface, but I don't see an easy way to do it.  It 
seems like it would be a no-brainer if the new eve format stored packet 
contents, but that doesn't appear to be the case.

Does anyone here have a good solution for this?  Maybe write a unified2 
parser for logstash?  Or does it make sense to put in a feature request 
for eve to be able to output packets in the alert messages?
