/etc/init.d/boot.udev restart

Though I don't thing you need to restart it to get rules changes in
effect. Possibly for the main config file.

That would be the "reload" verb, correct? That's the usual way to handle
configuration changes in servers smart enough to support incremental
reconfiguration (Apache is another example).

Generally yes.

But this touches a sort of bug with me.
Just as I prefer that the default action be to receive answers to questions
that I actually ask, so do I prefer to answer questions as asked, as long as
they were answerable at all.

I know there is a reload option, and I know it's probably all anyone ever
needs, and I also know that reload is different from restart and they asked
about restart.

Maybe they are replacing the udevd binary?
Maybe they are testing the restart action of the script itself?
Probaby not but all I need to know is that I don't know.

But you're right I probably should have pointed it out as a suggestion in
addition to the strict-interpretation answer.
