Re: [Wireshark-commits] master 579e7e1: Wireshark: Add option to choose format type of capture file

BTW, is changing the wtap_register_open_info() function prototype/ABI again soon going to cause you problems?

I ask because it changes again, with an additional argument, in here:

The additional argument is for whether the wiretap reader being registered should be put at the top or bottom of its 
respective magic/heuristic section.  For example if it's a heuristic type, is it a strong vs. weak heuristic.

But if it would be painful for you, I can change that to keep the current wtap_register_open_info() as is, and make a 
new internal one that the existing wtap_register_open_info() can then just call with the default argument (which is for 
a weak heuristic).

I gather I should now use wtap_register_open_info() with 
const struct open_info

Unfortunately there isn't a good description of the content of the struct:
struct open_info {
   const char *name;                                              /**< ? */
   int type;                                                               /**< One of OPEN_INFO_MAGIC or 
   wtap_open_routine_t open_routine;                 /**< Callback */
   const char *extensions;                                     /**<  "I'm guessing" the default file extension, used 
to save this type should be NULL if no default extension is known */

What should "*name" be?
