I think *not* a good idea. For security reasons. Running inetd makes
your unit a potential server. To do a proper job in the book might
require discussion of (and installation of) things related to firewalls,
tcpwrappers and other topics. IMO, that would move the book's intent
away from having a basic unit that can be used for whatever the end user
ultimately desires.

BLFS delves into all needed topics adequately.
