Brad Powell's original thesis:
You should probably just turn off echo, discard, daytime and chargen
as well. From the comment in inetd.conf:
# Echo, discard, daytime, and chargen are used primarily for testing.
Alas, some routers use rdate to set their clock on boot.
daytime is still required in that case. However, I agree
with you even to the point on killing off inetd on
