This fits with a feature that I've been talking to several people about 
for quite a while which would make a bit of the beginning of each 
direction of a connection available in script-land.  That would help 
with your problem a bit, but it sounds like since there is a particular 
packet that you want, you may want to write your own analyzer that gets 
the exact data that you are looking for because you should be able to do 
packet level stuff easily there.
