Uh, well if for some reason you don't want it to necessarily do what you
want (restart networking) depending on your runlevel configuration, I
guess you could say it works fine.

'/etc/init.d/networking restart' will always restart networking, even if
networking is disabled in your current runlevel.

What you're probably looking for if you don't like spelling it all out
is the 'service' script in sysvconfig.

You win again, gravity!
