Subject: inetd.conf defaults

We have "shell" (rsh) and "login" (rlogin) turned on by default in 
/etc/inetd.conf. I think this is a bad default. I filed a PR on this 
issue some months ago, but there's been no movement. I can obviously 
commit the change to comment them out myself, but I want some 
discussion before I "just do it".

This is going to tech-net rather than tech-security because I think I 
can guess that the security mavens (among whom I most often count 
myself) are supportive of such a change; I wanted a little wider 
exposure to people who are network mavens.

What do you all think?
