unified2 has a more extensible format and allows for other data
beyond just events and packets.  The record data is independent
of the type.  In the future, performance stats, extended portscan
information will be logged via unified2.

For example, unified2 supports logging of IPv6 addresses in an event
record, whereas events under unified output did not because of the
fixed data structure for the event output type.
