new completions for iftop and tcpdump


I've send this email to zsh-workes 6 days ago and got no reply, so I
resend it here. Maybe someone improoves these completions enough to be
included into zsh.



I've written some completion for iftop and tcpdump commands - see
attachements. However there's still lacking one for Berkeley Packet
Filter, both completions will benefit much if someone writes it.
