I took a deeper look at it. And although it is very powerful and
versatile, I think it would be overkill in my case. But nether the
less, I contacted Olivier and asked him, what his plans are and if he
wants to see wsgd integrated into Wireshark.

For letting other people use it to integrate new protocols, I totally
agree on that point. But for it being easy to use, it should
definitely be supported by an UI.

I will take a deeper look at the sourcecode and then try to figure out
what (together with Olivier as part of wsgd or building something new)
can be submitted as a patch.

regards,
Roland
