meh, if the default install has all of the inetd services disabled then
it's idiotic to have an inetd installed (and just fucking insane to
actually have an inetd *running*).  Things which need inetd *should* be
required to Depend on it (or some virtual package which provides it).

Packages which can run both with and without inetd could 'Suggest'
the virtual inetd package.
