Wireshark-dev: [Wireshark-dev] ESP encryption key limitation

Using ESP dissector and it is very useful.
Is there a simple way to enter an ESP encryption key which contains
non-ASCII characters? 

Example configurations for ESP dissector preferences
(http://wiki.wireshark.org/ESP_Preferences) contain only ASCII based
keys, e.g.:


In my situation the keys are negotiated by IKE and are binary only,

0x43A01234 0x56CFED13..

Is there a way to enter the key without dissector modification?

Thank you,
Alex Filonenko
