As a purely Debian user, the 'service x restart' pattern is far more memorable than the syncconf method.  I know personal preference isn't a great reason to add a knob, but Garrit's method is probably going to be much more familiar to many users.

As to _when_ you'd need this... during a config update as you mentioned, but possibly also to easily generate logs for troubleshooting a config I suppose?
