There's a whole lot of servers (telnetd, ftpd, nfs-server) that are
standard that most people won't install (or will install different
versions of.) I don't think they're good to install by default without
big warnings. (I've long considered trying to root the tamogachi server
that was a part of Slink games task. I figure there were probably quite
a few systems out there unknowingly running that demon on their box.)
