My usual process for porting common UI code has been to "svn cp" a file
containing UI-independent code from the gtk directory to the ui
directory, then delete as needed from the old and new locations so as to
preserve SVN history. tap-tcp-stream.[ch] in r51538 shows an example of


Semi-related note: The SCTP Chunk Counter uses the parameter dialog
(tap_param_dlg.[ch]). If anyone happens to beat me to it, *please* use a
single combined dialog instead of separate filter input + statistics
output dialogs. I always feel like Wireshark is asking me to take a
short survey on display filters when I'm trying to view stats.
