For troubleshooting. I have one stunnel service to provide a few VNC
tunnels, and a second service to collect POP3 email securely. My stunnel
upgrade was prompted by some problems with the POP3S collection, and in
troubleshooting this I wanted to restart this stunnel without affecting
the VNC ones.
It just seems "natural" to me that there should be an easy way to
control individual tunnels, and under Windows separate services provided
it. In principle separate services also prevent problems in one stunnel
instance from affecting others, though I don't know that I've ever
actually run into this.
