  Of course, but exactly what SIGTERM does and exactly what command the
admin should send to restart the service are details. My point was that
when faced with a trivial problem such as a corrupt cache entry, the
admin should be able to *immediately* hit the "restart the process"
command, whatever that is on her supervision system, without having
to care if the process will be down for zero, one or sixty seconds.
