Restarting Networking in Debian

What is the deal now with 'restarting' networking services in Debian 5
& Squeeze? I use to be able to run the command:

/etc/init.d/networking restart

Now when I do so in Debian, I get a strange error:

Running /etc/init.d/networking restart is deprecated because it may
not enable again some interfaces ... (warning).
Reconfiguring network interfaces...done.

Not to mention any changes I made to my static IP address in
'/etc/network/interfaces' didn't take effect which leads me to believe
the command I ran above didn't restart the network daemon or is not
forcing it to look for changes.

I asked on  the forums and I can't get a straight answer as to what is
the official command in Debian to restart the networking daemon? There
can't be six different answers and someone on the dev team has to have
a official correct command to do something as simple as restarting
