The restart of the daemon could fail because the config file has not
been updated yet with the .pacnew one.
It might not be a good idea to restart the daemon automatically
without checking the config first.

In any cases, this is not something that you can control globally. It
has to be handled separately in every install scriptlet of daemon
packages. Also keep that in mind.
