The problem with putting a canned line in the standard inetd.conf is
that there's not a canonical way to invoke ftp-proxy. The options
depend on the details of the setup, and the port number isn't standard
In an ideal world perhaps ftp-proxy would be able to find this out for
itself, but there are problems with that too: someone might
legitimately want to run multiple copies (e.g., one for outgoing ftp,
one for incoming ftp to a ftp server kept behind a NAT for safety) and
it's far from clear exactly how that should be arranged.
If anyone has any brilliant ideas, or patches, please send them along;
in the meantime, I'm going to mark this suspended.
