If the init script knows about a pid file presumably we can avoid 
killall and just kill the pid? I would expect some other init scripts 
already do this or even that one of the standard shell functions 
available to Fedora init scripts does this for you? Reload on HUP is 
pretty standard.

This will HUP all session daemons also, is the main issue.
