Can I use xinetd instead of inetd?

The instructions for setting up svnserve discuss configuring inetd.

Isn't inetd obsolete? I have been working with Linux for 3 years
and I have only ever seen xinetd used.

Mandrake (I am running 10.0) doesn't use one xinetd.conf file. It has
a directory, /etc/xinetd.d, in which there is a file for each service entry.
Here is my entry for svn:

# svnserve configuration
#
service svn
{
    socket_type = stream
    protocol = tcp
    wait = no
    user = svn
    server = /usr/local/bin/svnserve
    server_args = -i
}

This is my best interpretation of this inetd.conf example given in the
manual:
svn stream tcp nowait svnowner /usr/local/bin/svnserve svnserve -i

Is this right? I suspect not. The only way I can get svnserve to work is by
starting it from the command line:

svnserve -d

Can I make xinetd work? (How?) Or, do I have to use inetd?
