Not realy, but we should remove duplicates if possible I think. The problem is that we recive dissectors for protocols we may not know

much about. 


Both of these appear to be well written, and work OK, but I prefer the output of packet-nsip, as it is less cluttered (e.g. dissecting NS block) and seems  

to be updated to a later version of 3GPP (understands SDU control bits).


If it is useful I could check more carefully that packet-nsip.c is complete as a precursor to removing packet-gprs-ns.c?



Please do.
