Wireshark-dev: [Wireshark-dev] Time references

I am working with network data from various sources, captured at various locations. Most of the tools I use allow (or require) me to display the times as UTC, allowing easy comparisons as well as discussions with colleagues who are working in other time zones.
Why is it not possible to set the time of day display in wireshark to  
display in UTC in addition to (or instead of) displaying in the local  
time zone (which is completely irrelevant to the analysis). Providing  
this facility would greatly simplify portable analysis of network data  
and should be trivial as parallel display routines for local and UTC  
display are readily available. I have not examined the source  
carefully, but suspect that the addition of UTC display should be  
fairly simple.
