Nope, I want /etc/init.d/foo reload to work as expected.

I've written package-specific handlers for now, along the lines of my
ten-second version earlier and I'll be submitting those at some point
this week. I'd love to see a more general solution, even if it takes some
modicum of effort per daemon to implement. Especially for daemons that
are mildly costly to restart, and can't just reread their config files.

All original matter is hereby placed immediately under the public domain.
