1- When viewing a dump and hitting the "Statistics/VoIP Calls" menu choice:

   1a- In the window that pops up, display the filename if available
(this is useful when you have multiple instances of Wireshark running,
each displaying a different capture)
Seen something like this before. Must be a good idea then :).

   1b- In that same window that pops up, let the user use the Ctrl or
Shift keys to select multiple calls or a range of calls.  Even better,
offer a shortcut such as Ctrl-A to select all messages.
By clicking the records you toggle their inclusion in the graph (and 
toggle their color as indication). Much less fragile than the click wit 
Shift or Ctrl paradigm. A Ctrl-A for all calls would be a nice addition.
   1c- Once you hit the "Graph" button, display the capture name in
the "Graph Analysis" window, just like 1a.
See 1a.

2- Maybe have a new item in the Statistics menu that would be "Graph
all VoIP calls" that would automatically find all calls, select all
and open a Graph Analysis window right away.  This would be a time
saver when it is the main operation that you always repeat. Especially
if you have 20 or 50 calls in the capture..
Ehm, yep, that could be nice to have.

This graph analysis is a very powerful feature.  I saw in the wishlist
that some people wanted it for other types of flows than SIP.  I also
think it would be a great tool (although I would have no immediate use
for it)
Currently we support:
        "SIP",
        "ISUP",
        "H.323",
        "MGCP",
        "AC_ISDN",
        "AC_CAS",
        "T.38",
        "H.248",
        "SCCP",
        "BSSMAP",
        "RANAP",
        "UNISTIM"

so that item is a little outdated.

Thanx,
Jaap
