Hmmm... since we now have the nice feature of multiple profiles, would
it not be an idea to ship Wireshark with a couple of profiles? At least 
three profiles would be useful:

- Maximum Features, which should have *all* features enabled
- Maximum Performance, which should have all performance eating
    features and protocols disabled
- General Usage, which could have all the most used features and
    protocols enabled

Just a thought :-)
