Bug#184495: libc6.postinst needs to restart postgres

Is it ok to restart "/etc/init.d/postgresql" in postgresql package?

That will terminate all connections. Some (many?) programs (e.g., msyslog, which could even be running on another machine) won't automatically re-establish the connection.

it will also cause a transaction abort, which could be undesirable.

So, I'd be wary of doing a PosgreSQL restart, just like gdm/kdm/xdm ones.

PS: I plan to try fiddling the soname on the libnss modules; let's home we can say "Goodbye!" to all this silly restarting business.
