I've used both. xinetd has lots of useful features (conf.d-style
config, rate limiting, etc). My understanding was that it aimed at
being a better inetd, and within those goals, it definitily does the
trick. And anyone taking on xinetd maintainership has my respect and a
few beers next time we meet.

Maybe inetd has grown all those same features in the meantime? If it
does, the manpage I have at hand right now doesn't know about it.
