We thought about this (I think we actually has an implementation of it)
and decided that the current way would be more appropriate (similar
to what it was). The point is that you have to realize that
* you can select multiple interfaces
* you need to click on the Start button

I'm actually open to change it to whatever makes sense most. I'm not
sure how to make a decision... The real fun will be the capture/options
dialog...

However, we still need to synchronize the ways of selecting the interfaces
and starting the capture. From the main welcome window, the capture/interfaces
dialog, the start menu item and (eventually) the capture/options dialog box.

Best regards
