Protocol Encapsulation

I want to be able to "wrap up" access to a service on my machine, 
forcing anything to go through the same wrapper. That way I don't have to 
have a separate TCP wrapper for each service that I want. 

For example, consider telnet. I don't simply want to add the service in
inetd.conf - I want to force users to go via ssh. Ssh port forwarding
doesn't seem to do the trick, because the port I forward to has to be
open,  does it not? 

And, if the port has to be open, users can connect to the port directly. 

Any advice?
