Almost every port containing a service stops the service before updating but
does not restart it afterwards. I was wondering how difficult it can be to
restart the updated service after installing the files? In my opinion, it
would be less error-prone than hoping for the administrator to remember
restarting all updated services...
While this depends on every port maintainer, a general guideline about this
would help and encourage maintainers to do this.
