It can't be, because "monit quit" just sends a SIGTERM to the monit daemon 
and thus is functionally the same as a "kill $(cat monit.pid)" or similar. 
Your approach is still better, though. The previous rc-script would kill 
any monit, including user instances.

Then again... "reload" works just fine and a "restart" is practically 
never needed, so I'd consider a few seconds of sleep between stop and 
start as "good enough".
