The best way may to be create a new type of preference for registration 
from your dissector.  This new type of preference would create a browse 
button in the preferences pane, allowing the user to find where they 
want to save the file.

Another way to do it might be to have a new type of Export Object, or 
another Analyze - Follow like TCP, UDP, SSL.
