It would be very interesting to have a way to do this. There's
interesting data that my "patch" is leaving on the table.

The most significant are:

 - If the flow was permitted or denied; I tried to implement this, it
didn't go very well though. It didn't seem that the value
NF_F_FW_EVENT was being correctly set by the ASA (more likely, I
wasn't reading it correctly). Right now you can use a 0 byte flow as
an indicator that the traffic wasn't permitted but that's far from
 - Translated addresses and ports
