Yes.  In our environment, we've moved sync_client to be started at  
the same run level as cyrus master, instead of having cyrus master  
start it.  That way, when sync_client dies (it dies, BTW, so you  
ought to be monitoring it, and the log, and sync_server), it's simple  
for an admin to restart it.
