I have just committed a patch (r24089) to add support for configuration profiles, which can be used to configure and use more than one set of preferences and configuration files.
This can be found in the "Configuration Profiles..." menu item from  
the Edit menu, or simply by pressing Shift-Ctrl-A.  It's also possible  
to start wireshark and tshark with a named profile by using the "-C  
ProfileName" option.  A new status pane in the main window will show  
the current profile.
The configuration files currently stored in the Profiles are:
- Preferences
- Capture Filters
- Display Filters
- Coloring Rules
- Disabled Protocols
- User Accessible Tables

The recent data are by design not added to the profile.

Planned future enhancements:
- make a more convenient function to switch between profiles
- add a "clone profile" button to copy an existing profile
- make the profiles list active and accept return as OK
- save users "Decode as" in the profile
- make new, clone and deletion of profiles more secure
- make some of the recent values available in the profile

Please try it out, and give me feedback what you think :)
