Actually, it autodetects that the conversation is NBD. Cool, I didn't
know wireshark could do that. So, it is me :)

One thing that might help is if the Info column would contain things
like "Read request" and "Read reply" instead of (or in addition to)
"NBD_CMD_READ 0x1000 28672" and "NBD_CMD_READ Error:0". Obviously Source
and Destination explain what's going on, but it would be slightly
clearer if they explicitly said that one is the request and the other is
the reply.

Other than that, it seems pretty neat. Oh, and you do handle the
NBD_CMD_DISC okay -- there isn't much more to say about that than "if we
see that pass by as a command, the connection will drop"...
