The one in CVS is just an example; I don't test it.

The spec looks good.  Perhaps you could add a comment to the xinetd
file that it if it's on, the daemon should be turned off?

You might put '--nice 5' in the default options.  You might add
examples of others as comments in  the sysconfig file, in particular
--jobs and --allow.
