On a related note, it's definitely nice to be able to consolidate the 
configuration into a single universe_wsi.ini, but --daemon and --stop-daemon 
are not sufficient for smooth operation of a multi web and job runner instance 
of Galaxy. I wonder if anyone's already adapted run.sh to restart the runners 
one by one to accommodate addition of tools and reference datasets without 
disrupting the user experience.
