iana-etc includes some scripts for downloading recent version of protocols
and services from IANA site. These scripts are unusable now because IANA
changes addresses and formats of its data. It is not a problem if you happy
with 5-years old data. Really, there is only one interesting change in new
IANA data - port numbers for dccp and sctp protocols in services file.
