Moving the .xpms into ui/ makes sense to me. I'm not sure whether separating
the different image type is useful, but from a usage point of view moving the
relevant files to packaging/images/ sounds better to me - hmm, or not: If
icons/pictures are used in more than one place, we will run into consistency
problems - iff they are used in more than one place.
And eventually tshark should probably go into ui/text/ as well as all the
non-interactive text tools like editcap, dumpcap etc.

But I will call it a day (or night) for now.

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