Actually, the point is that writing TONS of scripts to get your work
done (that's what Linux world does) always pissed me off.  You have a
shell script that is in fact a wrapper for another shell script, and like
this in turn it goes on and on and on again.  Icky! :-)  I don't like
how Linux smells.

Why can't I simply write kill -1 `cat /var/run/sendmail.pid`?  I don't
consider it being sagnificantly longer than writing /etc/rc.d/sendmail
restart.  After all, if your typing speed is good enough, it doesn't
really matter whether you type in 30 or 20 chars.
