As an aside, one of the first things I do to a new Unix system install 
is to uninstall any "inetd" (which includes "xinetd").

I consider "inetd" to be archaic, and a source of potential problems.  
Most of the services you'll find in a typical "inetd" config are things 
that should have been disabled 20 years ago.  Keeping the few services 
you need as daemons is simpler and faster (if they've been designed to 
be daemons, and not necessarily designed to be inetd-safe), and you have 
enough RAM nowadays.  Removing "inetd" also makes it harder for packages 
to add services that you didn't notice because they are not normally 
running (and for similar reasons, I disable the Sun RPC portmapper 
unless I need NFS).  Instead of "tcp_wrappers", you can use the newer 
IP-level filtering that governs the entire system (or you can 
compartmentalize with KVM/Xen or SELinux).
