Another issue is IPv6 support.  Currently, packages are only adding
IPv4 entries.  In most cases, they should be adding a corresponding
IPv6 (tcp6 or udp6) entries as well.  Doing this by hand results in
the above warning as well.


The solution to this could be
a) Every package calling update-inetd should call it twice; once for
   IPv4, and again for IPv6.  This would require all packages to be
   updated.
b) update-inetd should default to creating both unless explicitly told
   not to.  This has the advantage of being transparent.
