Put the inetd control files in the control archive, they'll be in
/var/lib/dpkg/info and not conffiles, make update-inetd only use them at
install/upgrade/remove time, always honoring user local customizations.
Maybe add hooks to update-inetd so postinsts can force attempts at merge
if something big changed (like a port).
