[RFC] netstd

Recently, I was looking into removing rshd from my computer (ssh has the
functionality that I need, and provides compatabiliy with rsh).

However, I noticed this:

11:46pm $ dpkg -S /usr/bin/ftp
netstd: /usr/bin/ftp

11:47pm $ dpkg -S rshd
netstd: /usr/sbin/in.rshd

If I removed rshd, I would lose /usr/bin/ftp (and several other useful
thigns, like in.fingerd). 

Now, I can obviously just comment out the offending lines in /etc/inetd.conf
but this is much more error-prone than dpkg -r.

Does anyone else think that this is a problem?
