Second idea: Fileshark
I've been thinking of such project a long before GSoC was announced. I really miss such tool and I really would like 
to see it. So, I would be glad do it by myself during summer.
I think, the main concern with this project is to use as much common code as possible and maintain UI consistency 
with Wireshark.

...except in those places where the UI *should* be different.  For example, when showing a JPEG, Wireshark doesn't have 
multiple items in the "packet list" pane, because the JPEG is in, for example, a single HTTP message.  However, in 
Fileshark, the dissector might want to have separate items in the list pane for different parts of the JPEG file.

I think it would be reasonable to make it possible to use the same dissectors as for Wireshark

Yes, that's a lot of the point of Fileshark.
