When "--test --stop" will have received a fix, the man page should also
document better how do use --test to see if a process is running.
Perhaps offering an option --process-not-running ( equivalent to --test
--stop) would be nice, permitting clean init scripts that would just do :
if start-stop-daemon --process-not-running [other fields]; then
# start daemon
echo -n "(already running)'
