I would like to submit the attached patch to ethereal-0.10.12 complete with a
patch to ethereal-0.10.12.ebuild which will disable saving files in ethereal.
The reason I need this is to enable regular users in a classroom environment to
take traces of network traffic, without malicious users having a possibility to
overwrite vital files like /etc/fstab or /etc/rc.conf.
The way the patch to ethereal-0.10.12 works is it pops up a message saying
"Savind disabled" when a user saves a file. The patch to ethereal-0.10.12.ebuild
adds a use-flag "nosave", which (when enabled) applies the patch to source.

Thanks for your contrib, but those kinda hacks are preferable submitted
directly to ethereal development. Thanks again n e way :)
