'Helper' Service?

So when you run Media Browser Server as a service, we all know you can't actually restart or shut it down from the web interface, because a service can't restart itself.  It's not THAT big a deal but I was messing with SABnzbd, and noticed that their solution for the same exact situation is to install a secondary 'helper' service, so that the helper service will then be used to shut down and restart the main service whenever necessary.

 

Like I said, it's not a huge deal, but if something similar to that is at all possible for MBS, that'd simplify things a bit.

Yes, that's really the only way to do it. But the core team is focused on cross-platform projects right now, and that's a windows-only enhancement. I am hoping that perhaps a new contributor can step up to take on that project.
