Seeing this, it occurs to me that commit messages should have links to
relevant mailing list threads, it makes the reason for various choices
so much clearer :-)

its exit code and its on-fail attribute. (Well, any operation except
notify, as became apparent in another recent thread.)

By default, that means a restart (stop then start).
