I have code to do this on Mac OS X and FreeBSD... However, currently the
interface stuff is
handled by dumpcap, not by Wireshark itself. If we rescan the local interfaces,
we use
dumpcap, which uses libpcap. Using a different method might result in some
inconsistencies.
I would prefer to use a single mechanism, not two.

It might be a possibility to use a mechanism to figure out that something might
have changed
(reading on a routing socket on *BSD, for example) and if there is an
indication that something
might have changed, use the current mechanism to do the rescan. This would
avoid inconsistencies.

Best regards
Michael
