I whole-heartedly agree with Sean on this. There are very few good excuses
these days to have telnetd installed on any machine. And I can't think of
any way to use telnetd securely, except for maybe one person on private
network in a lead-lined building.

I would argue that telnetd is also extremely useful -- lightweight,
ubiquitous.  Granted, in many cases, sshd is preferable, however both
programs have limitations and if improperly used can both result in security
