Hi Roland,

Personally, I would avoid this usage here as I read `&&` as "find the packets where both of these display filters are valid". 

(If I'm reading you correctly) would it be possible to use  `.` like `Proto.HTTP` to mimic the expectation in display filters that right is a component of left? I think // or any other unused operator is also preferable.

We have a new feature in Wireshark, where you can sort display filters into subfolders. See https://twitter.com/bubbasnmp/status/1252627399201742848 for an example use case. 

The current implementation requires the name of the folder to be part of the filter name, so in the case of the picture it would read "Proto && HTTP" or "Proto && TCP", to create a folder "Proto" with the children "HTTP" and "TCP".

Now the question is, if && is the correct delimiter. What do you think? Would // for instance make more sense?

Please let me know

cheers, Roland
