Description of problem:
Would be nice to open *.pcap files directly from nautilus or web browser.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

Steps to Reproduce:
1. double-click on local *.pcap file in nautilus
2. in firefox address bar type URL for remote *.pcap file
Actual results:
1. 'no associated application' message
2. prompt to save the file/choose an application

Expected results:
1. wireshark launched and opens selected file
2. option 'Open with wireshark' present in download prompt.

Additional info:
archive with suggested src.rpm changes attached.
Extract attachment to src RPM hierarchy root.
File list:

application/x-pcap registered (aliased with application/pcap, because some web servers respond with such content-type for pcap files).

wiresharkdoc-* icons were extracted from wiresharkdoc.ico
