By the way, I would prefer a different option other than "-A" for "*A*dd
separator", such as "-s" or "-S" for "[sS]eparator", but unfortunately, both of
them are already taken for "*s*naplen" and "*S*how packets in real time",
respectively and so can't be used for "[sS]eparator".

However, there is currently an undocumented option, "-P" which causes tshark
to, *P*erform a two pass analysis".

So, might I propose we:
1) Rename the current "-P" option as "-2" for "2-pass analysis", and then
document it.

2) Re-use "-P" for this option, which would stand for, "Partition" 

Or come up with another name for "separator" from your favorite thesaurus that
starts with a letter not currently used as a tshark option?

Or is everyone cool with "-A" and we just stick with that?
