Why wrap all C declarations? I'm sure this is only relevant to a small portion
of the files.

OK, a more general question:
As it looks like we will soon have a second "full blown" ui (tshark isn't
interactive, so I don't count this), how about
- reorganizing the filesystem into something like:
  ui/			<- common ui stuff if it exists
  ui/gtk/
  ui/text/		<- tshark and other text utils
  ui/qt/		
- once the qt stuff has settled in, maybe decide on a API so there won't
  be an arbitraty number of files that need protecting

Oh, one last question regarding the qt UI: Will the UI be built using an
interface building tool (qtcreator?)

We are stuck with technology when what we really want is just stuff that
works. Some say that should read Microsoft instead of technology.
