[stunnel-users] Multiple Windows Services

I upgraded from stunnel 4.34 to 4.46 (Windows) today, which took much
more time than expected.
First, I was surprised to see that my specified service name (via
"service =" was ignored), until I eventually found the note in the 4.42
changelog about "Removed support for changing Windows Service name with
"service"". This isn't the end of the world (I changed the display name
using sc) but it would be very helpful -- and time saving -- if the man
page was updated to reflect this change.
A bigger issue I ran into is that because the service can't be renamed,
I can have only one stunnel service installed. The only mention of this
I found was a reply to a list question saying "Running more than one
stunnel service has been obsoleted." What was the motivation behind this
change? Though I can specify multiple [service] sections in
stunnel.conf, I see no way to control them individually. It has been
useful to have separate stunnel (Windows) services installed, which can
be stopped and started independently.
