rsyslog could still do the condrestart (or restart) couldn't it?  I do
it (mostly just out of me doing it all the time no matter what) anyway
even if the daemon isn't running.  It just fails on stop, then ok's on
start after it's running.

Of course, it wouldn't had been running initially, so above might be
mute point anyway?
