Why would one want sshd to run from inetd?

sshd should typically be run as a daemon.

As far as I know, there isn't a debconf way to place it as a inetd

But if you really want it to be run from inetd... it'll be very similar
to this as an entry in /etc/inetd.conf:

        ssh stream tcp nowait root /usr/sbin/tcpd  /usr/sbin/sshd

Please make sure you have priv separation enabled in /etc/ssh/sshd_config

        ie: UsePrivilegeSeparation yes

also in /etc/services ensure you have:

        ssh 22/tcp # SSH Remote Login Protocol
        ssh 22/udp

Also make sure that you touch the file:

so it won't start on bootup spewing errors that something else is
listening on port 22.

Now, since I have not tested this at all... it should really work,
though YMMV.
