I have it!  I took Dennis Ferguson's nsmaint code and added Andy's
check_boot code and bundled it up into a inhanced nsmaint.  Together
with Theodore Ts'o ninit, these programs pretty much run the show
here.  Our staff can reload the server by typing "nsmaint hup" which
does a check on the boot files before reloading.  Some of my recoding
is dreadful :), but it works very well.  I'm sure someone out there
could grab it, cover my sins, and make it better.  I stuck in the ftp
area on indiana.edu as nsmaint.tar.Z which includes the ninit stuff too.
