Wireshark 1.5.1 can export SMB objects.
Jose Pico submitted a patch to add this feature to Wireshark.
The white paper: A tool for capturing SMB files with Wireshark by David Perez & Jose Pico is freely available.

The white paper describes the plug-in they have created, the identifying of the SMB streams and gives an explanation of the columns in the "Wireshark: Export SMB object list"

So ... what's the question exactly? Am I missing something?

Oops, no question.
I thought it's useful information for the community.
Should I delete this "question"?

I agree it's useful information; I just didn't think it fit the Q&A format of ask. In the past, I've shared what I thought was useful information to the community on the wireshark-dev and/or -users mailing list. Maybe those would be more appropriate? A post on lovemytool might also be appropriate. BTW, I like that site and your articles. :)

I'll post it elsewhere.
Thank you for your feedback.

Great to hear that you enjoy reading my articles:)
