I've since packaged a version that installs itself into inetd.conf,
has init.d, cron and ip-up/ip-down scripts, etc. which works pretty
well for me. It's been sitting in incoming for a couple of weeks
now; as potato is now officially released, I hope the incoming
backlog will start to go down so that noffle is installed into woody.
