I don't think it makes sense to treat everything that presently has an
/etc/init.d script equally.  For example, if cupsd has no queue, it's
probably safe for it to just restart itself at some period of time.
Probably the easiest way to implement this would be a flag in the init
script which says whether it's safe to "service restart" on updates.

For other things, an important question is whether the currently
running desktop depends on it.  If it does, it's not safe to have such
a UI.
