#983: reload-vcl doesn't support all varnishd flags
 Reporter:  kane   |        Type:  defect  
   Status:  new    |    Priority:  lowest  
Milestone:         |   Component:  varnishd
  Version:  3.0.0  |    Severity:  trivial 
 Keywords:         |  
 Seems reload-vcl has a hardcoded list of parameters that varnishd takes,
 but at least in 2.1.5 they're out of sync. So when running reload, the
 following happens (non-fatal):

 $ sudo /etc/init.d/varnish reload
  * Reloading HTTP accelerator varnishd
 Illegal option -i

 The patch is trivial and inline below:
