I have been a long time user but recently more so than normal. I have found very often that functionality to sanitise captured data would be extremely helpful. Understandingly many prefer that captures provided to 3rd parties don't contain excessive or confidential data or network information.
Searches of the mailing lists and general Internet have not shown me any 
existing functionality within Wireshark.
If such a feature is not implemented I would like to add to the wishlist 
(http://wiki.wireshark.org/WishList) but as per instructions am posting 
here first.
It's a commonly requested feature.  There's at least one enhancement 
request open for it too:
https://bugs.wireshark.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=4581

If it's not already on the wishlist, it certainly could be added.

We should probably also make a Wiki page explaining why it's non-trivial to implement (there have been emails explaining the complexity over the years).
