Wireshark-dev: [Wireshark-dev] UTC time display

I work with capture files containing data collected at locations all over the world. The user community for this data is likewise all over the world and we all use UTC time to ensure that we are talking about the same events.
Including an option to cause Wireshark to display in UTC rather than  
local would be a significant benefit to me and this community.  I  
suspect that it is as simple as setting a preference and inserting a  
switch between localtime() and gmtime() (or their equivalents) in  
whatever code is used to convert the timestamps to calendar format.
