I agree that diversion are the way to go.  I'm not sure what would happen,
however, if you diverted inetd w/o diverting update-inetd.  Is that going 
to cause a lot of problems?  Perhaps if you don't have time to do it, you 
could look for volunteers?

At the *very* least, you should divert update-inetd with a script that
says "You will have to manually add lines for the daemon XXXX to /etc/
xinetd.conf (or whatever) until this script is complete.  Press return 
to continue."
