That would be useless: --disable SERVICE Disable SERVICE (e.g. "ftp") in /etc/inetd.conf . If you want to disable more than one SERVICE you can use a comma separated list of services (no whitespace characters allowed). This option in update-inetd comments out the specifed service, update-xinetd should do the same. Also having an option that is update-xinetd speciffic would not be too helpfull as none of the packages in debian are xinetd aware, much less update-xinetd aware (as it doesnt exist yet).
