Re: Thoughts on disabling an old dissector

Hi Evan,

Hmm, now that's an interesting dilemma. Couldn't we rename the old
dissector to something like "tpncp_old", "tpncpv1", or "tpncp_legacy"?

That said, it'd probably be a disservice to completely remove a dissector
that folks are probably using to dissect "legacy" TPNCP packets in old
trace files.

This was originally filed as bug 9569. The situation is sufficiently
unusual that I really don't know what the best solution is, so I
figured I'd ask for general comments from the list. The company who
created and used the TPNCP protocol (and submitted the packet-tpncp.c
dissector) wants to reuse that name for a new, different protocol and
are asking us to disable the old dissector to avoid conflicts. The bug
has more detail.

Thoughts?
