This is great :)

Is it easy to enhance this to keep the focus on the selected item in 
the packet-details pane, while scrolling through the packets with
"ctrl-up" and "ctrl-down"?  I find myself debugging tcp-seq numbers
quite often and it would be handy to be able to keep them highlighted
while moving up and down the packets.



PS  If it were up to me, I would even make "Up" and "Down" move though
    the packets, no whether which view is active and make "ctrl-up" and
    "ctrl-down" move the focus up and down in the current view. Come to 
    think of it, it might be nice to have a key-binding table so that 
    everyone can have their own key-bindings, just the way they like
    it. Or am I ranting now :)
