I've better defined the restart issue, and added maybe-restart to the policy
text. I also wrote the 'start-rc.d' script (although I called it
invoke-rc.d). All this stuff was sent to this list two days ago for
comments, before I fill it as a wishlist bug.

Code is written and tested, and the required policy change proposal written.
They were sent to this list two days ago, and a better version of the code
will be sent later today after I finish regression-testing it.

If you didn't receive it from debian-devel or debian-policy, I can send it
directly to you.
