tcpshow package

I'm planning on packaging tcpshow as a debian package, since I find it
pretty useful sometimes for network debugging.  I'm going to put it under
non-free since you can't make a profit by selling it. (Condition 2 of 6:)

Any comments?

decode support for DNS traffic or IP and TCP options, I would appreciate
it if they sent me a copy of their work (mike@NetworX.ie).  Thanks.
