Linking packets in dissector

I am writing a dissector for ZWave serial port protocol, and I would like to link request/response packets somehow in UI.

The protocol does not have request/response IDs, but it says that a responses to requests come in the same order they were sent, so it ought to be possible to match requests and responses.

I have read developer's guide about dissectors, but haven't found a way to say "this packet is a part of this request/response/multi-packet sequence". Is that possible? Have I missed some piece of documentation?

It also provides for a limited "callback ID", so some asynchronous responses can be matched to earlier requests, though these IDs can be reused.
