I'm tempted to completely rename the SSL dissector to TLS, given that SSLv3 is
from 1996 (draft-freier-ssl-version3-02.txt) and TLS 1.0 came out way back in
1999 (RFC 2246) :)

The dissector does already populate the protocol column with the current
protocol version being used (SSL or TLS), but as you stated, it shows up as
"SSL" and "Secure Socket Layer" elsewhere.

We can update the preference reading code to translate "ssl" in any user's
preferences file to "tls" for filters fortunately.

Does anyone really use SSLv3 anymore?  This reminds me of how we cover DHCP
under the BOOTP dissector still ;)
