Wouldn't this work just as well?

/etc/init.d/daemon stop && /etc/init.d/daemon start

IIRC, the former will exit with a nonzero status if there is nothing to
kill.  (Of course, for this to work, people need to be careful when using
the --oknodo option to start-stop-daemon, or the exit status from that
command won't be useful.)
