That company's plugin is badly-designed. It attempts to register libwiretap routines in the dissector registration routines, and seems to have some weird code that hijacks the pcap and pcapng libwiretap file reading code.

That means that it relies on internal details of libwireshark that we never intended to be made available even to the rest of Wireshark, much less to plugins.

It will take some time to figure out how to make that work more cleanly.
