[Openswan dev] init script feature request

Hi all,

I have had an interesting discussion on a Debian mailing list about a good way
to make a smooth transition from openswan 2.4 to 2.6 and somehow the issue was
raised to not allow pluto to start/restart/reload without proper configuration.
As looking into the current code shows that such a protection is already in
place for start but it's currently missing from restart, reload/force-reload
and condrestart/try-restart. What is the lists opinion on this matter? I
personally think it would be benefical for the userbase (for example someone
using the VPN to access the system itself).

Kind regards
