The UI is modeled on ethereal, but the plan was that you would have
a set of arbitrary data and would be trying to find structure in it.
Ethereal's packet analysis stuff is compiled as C plugins.

I wanted something where you could say "look at these four bytes... ok,
that represents the length of the following string" and watch the UI
readjust dynamically. The code was structured to support that, too...
