Can you give me an example of how this might be done in inetd
mode? I'd think that one would have to put the limit on all of
inetd as opposed to just NRPE.

I'd be concerned that doing so will lead to NRPE being part
transport and part plugin which will lead to less stability.
I suggest focusing on things to make it a better / more secure
execution daemon.
