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
...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.
