Thanks.  update-inetd has needed a revamp for quite a while.  I'll
hopefully have a chance to look at this properly at some point, but in
the meantime:

Are you sure putting the fragments in /usr/share is the best 
approach ?  It seems to me that it might be better to put them in
/etc/, where the sysadmin can edit them if they want to change the
behaviour but still get the benefit of the automatic addition/removal.
