Re comment #11:

Not all SA clients use spamc/spamd. Some are Perl-based and use the underlying
Mail::SpamAssassin classes directly. MIMEDefang is the one I use. It spawns its
own Perl-based slaves that invoke SA.

I'd recommend that the restart script not chain services that need to be
restarted on one command line with &&.

Is there some package-oriented producer/consumer scheme such that multiple
services can register interest in an event like this? Perhaps the thing to do is
to provide a directory somewhere where other packages can drop scripts that will
be invoked when sa-update reports that new content has arrived. If spamd is
enabled, a script to restart it can be dropped in this directory.

This machinery should all be pushed upstream.

See also http://issues.apache.org/SpamAssassin/show_bug.cgi?id=5003 where the
idea of breaking sa-update out into its own subpackage is being discussed.
