I think that program maintains comments in the file that are used for safe
upgrades at a later time. I'm not that concerned with it. When I upgrade, I'll
hack the file again. However, it's a great idea if you have to upgrade 100
machines and you don't want to edit each and every inetd.conf file.

I have it turned off. ;-)
