No, it wouldn't. ::start and ::stop commands where removed since they
duplicate simple functionality found built in windows.

The same you achieve calling mongrel_rails service::start -N myservice
could be done with just 3 words at the command line:

net start myservice

Doing a simple comparison:

"mongrel_rails service::start -N myservice".length
=> 41
"net start myservice".length
=> 19

Guess which one wins? This is also valid for stop (4 letters).

Why? you only need to remove and then reinstall the service (::remove
and then ::install again).
