What planet do you live on? I want MORE use of inetd, not less. I want to be able to select a service, and tell the system whether I want it running all the time, or only when needed.
In several cases as it is, I've taken services out of the boot sequence and placed them into ppp.d, inetd, or simply only start them when I need to.
