 This patch adds (ten) temporary coloring rules which will only live until Wireshark is
 quit. Temporary coloring filters can be set by:
The colors for the temporary coloring rules are now hardcoded as I do not know
 how to change the color of menu-items and therefore I chose to use icons to
 show the actual color of each of the ten temporary coloring rules. Is it at all
 possible to have different menu items in different colors?
One other way of solving this is to recreate the icons on the fly after changing the colors. I will have a look into that once it is clear whether I can use different colors within the menu structure.
I'm not even sure if different colored menu items is such a good idea, this often looks pretty ugly.

There are some other usability things that really needs to be solved:

- if no capture file is loaded, both "View/Colorize Conversation" and "View/Reset Coloring" are active and can be clicked - but nothing happens. A usability "no go".
- the main menu and the context menu have a different structure which is 
a another "no go" IMHO. If it's not possible to have the "View/Colorize 
Conversation" menu the same way than the context menu, it's probably 
better to remove it completely from the main menu. This applies as well 
for the "View/Reset Coloring".
