Hmm... last I heard the feedback to the author of the plugin was "be patient"
and that you have to wait until someone takes an interest in the dissector
before it would make it into WS.

So all of us RFID types can subscribe to this bug but given no apparent interest
in this protocol by the core devs I guess we'll be waiting forever.

Frankly, that's no way to treat contributors.

Do I mischaracterize the situation? Is there some other event that is holding up
this issue?
