Why do you need to prevent stopping daemon by script-level forcibly?
I think that users/developers may want to restart the daemon at their
own risk when it starts to behave something wrong or they change
a configuration (since "reconfigure" may not be stable feature).

# Maybe others have different opinion but I often use "restart".

If you need this patch anyway, please add other options to stop/restart
the daemon forcibly.  (e.g. adding force-stop/force-restart)

Thanks,
Kiyoshi Ueda
