Yes, please. Will this be a solution for all those broken /etc/init.d/*
scripts that grep /etc/inetd.conf to determine whether a daemon should be
started or not?

For example, look at this snippet from /etc/init.d/exim :

# Exit if exim runs from /etc/inetd.conf
if grep -q "^ *smtp" /etc/inetd.conf; then
    exit 0

This is not useable for people who use xinetd, like me.

Another question: how long will it be before netbase depends on
"netkit-inetd | xinetd", allowing me to remove inetd alltogether?
