Announce: script to automatically restart services after update of dependencies

I want to announce restart-services here [1][2]. It's a script
that tries to restart all services that have had their
dependency packages updated. This is primarily useful when
security-relevant libraries get security releases.

It's using checkrestart from the debian-goodies package to do
most of its work.

Together with the unattended-upgrades package it is saving me
a lot of system maintenance time, thus I am announcing it here
in the hope that it will save others a lot of time as well.
