It's not obvious that it should restart shibd, actually, if that's only the
Apache half and doesn't include any SP libraries.

In the RPM case, where the package includes shibd, libraries, and the Apache
part, we restart both to deal with cases where the SP is being added or
removed and to make sure the IPC code on both sides is in sync.
