You're right, in this specific case a "flush" would do fine.

Right. I also use "begin" if I changed a feeds entry in the newsfeeds
file and I don't want to reload innfeed itself. A "begin site" just
rereads the entry for "site" and doesn't flush all other entries.

Perhaps now, but I've used "begin site" on existing sites for years.
