Note: etch beta 3 show me a dpkg status of "ic" for netkit-inetd after a fresh
installation. openbsd-inetd is installed. Where does this come from?
The default installation also shows other questionable services that
automatically get installed:
- identd (who actually _needs_ this?)
- lpr (useless on systems without a printer)
I do not object to portmap+nfs (although I do not use it and immediately
uninstall it) but the two above are really not required and should not be
installed by default.
The suggestion to use "nodaemon" as default for exim4 when only handling local
mail will probably be rejected?
I pretty much favour a default installation where "netstat -l" shows no
services on network interfaces.
