Should the XML dissector have a port (range) preference?  Would be 
easier than LUA...

No, it would be enough to have the XML dissector register for the
given port in the tcp.port table.

Or have the heuristic dissector register for TCP, but that would be expensive.

-- lua snipplet that registers XML on tcp port 12345
DissectorTable.get("tcp.port"):add(12345, Dissector.get("xml"));

Suppose I've got a protocol that is simply XML running over TCP. I know that
Wireshark is capable of dissecting XML data from HTTP packets, etc. What's
the shortest/easiest way to dissect a conversation just as XML? Does it
require a new XML dissector?
