When you have large capture files containing traffic from multiple subnets, it
is not practical to have host name lookup in a hosts file for every IP address;
however, it would be nice if you could specify a subnet along with a name for
that subnet so that you could more easily tell the subnets apart.  I don't know
if this would be a modification of reading the hosts file, or a slight
modification of the networks file to include a netmask field, or an entirely
new, Wireshark-specific file.

For example, entries (in whatever file) might look like the following:
10.1.1.0/24           Customer1
10.2.1.0/24           Customer2
etc.

Then when an IP address appears, say 10.1.1.142, if name resolution is enabled,
Wireshark will display it as:

10.1.1.142 (Customer1.142)
