This is not nice no question but how will you solve changes in the config file 
which be not backward compatible? In such a case it would be better to stop 
instead of restart the daemon.

I think nothing would be better than to look what for updates be there and to 
stop a daemon manual or in the case of KDE step to runlevel 3 before the update. 
But this be nothing more than my 2c.

See you, Attila
