Sure, that may be better. Any one volunteering to add the icon?

A separate tree view or a tap to expert info?

I've been thinking of adding Packet comments as a tab to the expert info with a new expert group, adding
Severity would require some sort of tags added to the comments as well - a thought I've been toying with.
Something xml:ish?
- Links to associated packets <link>
- Severity
- filter(s) for (capture comments)
- preference to use (for capture comments) or a complete profile
- Filtered from original yes/no
- Name of original file
Any tag we can think of :-)
Some of that could be applied automatically when loading a capture.
Not sure how difficult it would be to parse the notes.

How to get going on all of this? It would be nice if we could agree on the direction we will want to go.
And then collaborate on the different parts.
