No, thanks.

Databases in releavant format are still available for download, so 
the script in question still can be used directly.  Also these 
databases are expected to be available for "redistribution license 
customers" for unspecified period of time.

Moreover, even if there will be no databases in the format in 
question available anywhere in the world, the script itself can be 
a good starting point for a converter for any format which uses IP 
address ranges.
