Yes, that is what I had in mind about the packets list control.
 
What happens to the protocol tree when you click the sub packets is still an open question though
Maybe it should show the parent's protocol tree and highlight the protocol item where the sub packet "begin"
or maybe it should only show a partial protocol tree in the first place.

So is the idea that the "list view" of packets would be turned into a "tree view", and packets with multiple sub packets would have the "open up the tree" triangle to the left, so that you could click on it and go from

and then click on it again and go back to the original?
