I've realised that there's another typo I missed in my change 9795
(which I only noticed when reviewing post merge).

The short name of the format as advertised by wiretap/file_access.c
has "nettrace3gpp324423", and there's one too many "4s" in that!
It should be "nettrace3gpp32423".
I was going to submit another change to fix that.

However, I've considered a broader refactor to remove "nettrace" from
the file names and format descriptions (etc), in order to match the names
from the 3GPP standards.

I.e. rename wiretap/nettrace_3gpp_32_423.* -> wiretap/3gpp_32_423.*,
change short name from "nettrace3gpp324423" to "3gpp32423", etc.

Is "nettrace" a de-facto or internal-to-3GPP name for the 32.423 format
that didn't get formalised in the official standards(s)?

Did anyone have any opinions one way or another about this rename idea?

If the consensus is to leave the "nettrace" portion in the name,
I'll just submit a change request for the typo fix change of
in wiretap/file_access.c (unless someone else beats me to it)
