Hmmm, the way you mentioned wiretap makes me think/realize that the TVBs
should not actually store the real offset (since we'd want that stuff
abstracted away by wiretap so the tvbuff code wouldn't have to deal with
ugliness like compressed files and so forth). That might make it a bit
harder... Unless we backed the TVBs with temporary files (seems wasteful
and a pain to clean up after).
Not sure I follow this, as I'm not sure what you mean by 'real
offset'. TVBs don't currently store any offset into the file itself.
And the virtual ones I described wouldn't have to, that information is
already in frame_data->file_off.
