The init script could provide a reload method that handles the update 
mechanism and that can be called also from cron, cfengine .....

Or the client has an integrated function that we can trigger by a signal 
to reload the configuration (like SIGHUP for the apache).

And /etc/sysconfig/openafs-client (for RedHat) is the place to custumize 
the files used for the update.
