IC, thanks.

I think this is something of a shame, actually, that it will no longer
support the .max suffix.  There are some services that one might well
want to specify a different maximum number for - certainly there are
systems in the University here that function less well than they might
because their inetd doesn't have this feature.

Why are we switching to the FreeBSD inetd ?
