Privilege separation etc is nice, but have a look at xinetd source and
reconsider. I have tried to fix a DoS-like problem (a timing-related bug
that caused temporary disabling of services) in xinetd once but
eventually gave up. The code is IMHO unmaintainable and doesn't raise
If a replacement is needed, I would rather look at openbsd-inetd.
