[Snort-devel] Meaning of GENERATOR_TAG and TAG_LOG_PKT

The spo_unified output plugin makes use of generator id GENERATOR_TAG and
signature id TAG_LOG_PKT when processing a rebuilt packet.
Comments in the spo_unified2 output plugin suggest this is bad and must not
be done. Why was this done in spo_unified; what was/is the meaning of
GENERATOR_TAG and TAG_LOG_PKT? I understand segments after the first segment
are written away as events with this generator; but where is this processed?
It looks to me like barnyard for example doesn't handle this case in any
special way. In my database I don't have a single event with this generator
so it seems this code fragment has not been executed, even though I have
stream5 enabled. Can someone shed some light on that??
