e) Let update-inetd handle this. This might not be enough for standalone
servers like apache and roxen but it would work with a pop3 server -
update-inetd -add should notice that there is already a valid entry enable
with that service and add the new entry with a hash mark.

I would volunteer the patch to update-inetd if needed.
