I thought about asking why a few months ago, but after reading his responses
in the BTS I decided I'd save my breath.  There is no good reason afaik,
and I'd even go out on a limb and say there is no good reason *period* as
I've been running several machines without a working inetd for a year or so
now, simply don't have the need for it on most workstations in my situation.
