Hmm.  I've never verified this myself, however until recently it was often 
claimed that 2.6 is still quite a bit worse than 2.4 for some workloads - 
so dropping 2.4 prematurely would probably be harmful.  Making it the 
default kernel however would certainly be sensible.

Wasn't that exactly what Javier proposed?  Or is xinetd not sensible enough?
