best practice for updating inetd.conf with a user-chosen port?

What is the best way to register a daemon under inetd with a
user-chosen port?  (I am packaging a daemon that is run by inetd, but
does not have a standard port number.)

Currently I am prompting the user for the port via debconf, grepping
/etc/inetd.conf to make sure it's not already there, and then calling
update-inetd.  Is there a better way, or an existing package that
does something similar?
