It's a commonly requested feature. There's at least one enhancement
request open for it too:

https://bugs.wireshark.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=4581

If it's not already on the wishlist, it certainly could be added.

We should probably also make a Wiki page explaining why it's non-trivial
to implement (there have been emails explaining the complexity over the
years).
