The modifications are only useful on machines where manual editing takes
place.  You could for example change where some stuff is being logged to
in syslog, and while still viewing the file in emacs, give the command to
restart syslogd.  The same goes for apache and all the other daemons on
the system.  It has proven a very useful feature in the past and one that
doesn't require much on our part to take to Debian's users.
