Please do not start the nsca daemon by default.
* nsca and send_nsca being packaged together means that nsca gets
installed on systems that send out passive service checks. These
systems shouldn't have an nsca daemon running.
* nsca not using tcp wrappers makes the nsca standalone daemon the
least secure method of running the daemon. The local admin should make
an informed decision whether to run the nsca daemon standalone, via
inetd or via xinetd (tcp-wrapped or plain).
Maybe the init script shouldn't be in /etc/init.d in the first place,
but in /usr/share/nsca/examples to encourage people to use (x)inetd.
