Are there other utils (C or Python preferred, but other languages are fine) that people like? Ability to display messages with name compression (cough cough priming responses cough) is a big plus.

You could take a look at packetq and see if it fits your requirements:

It is an SQL interface to pcap files, and the main purpose is to look at DNS packets, although it also knows about ICMP.
