Looking at what's in the #Guix inetutils package, there is a lot of terrible crap that doesn't belong there anymore.
inetd - not really. ftp client/server - nope. telnet client/server - nope. rsh client/server - hell nope wtf. tftp client/server - okay now you're just messing with me. syslogd - okay, but in an internet utils package?
All this is bundled with essentials like hostname, whois, and ping..
