Integrate Bro with network controller

I am working on integrating Bro with Faucet (an SDN controller that use ACL file to push OpenFlow rules to switches).

My question is what is the ideal way to do that?
Do I have to create netcontrol plugin for that, and can the plugin read and modify the ACL file (faucet ACL file)?
Should I just use the netcontrol broker to communicate with an external python client like (

Another general question, what is the main purpose of the netcontrol plugin?
Is it to add extra functionality within Bro, or to connect provide integration with external systems.

Thank you,
