The "status" option isn't documented as valid, but clearly in the code it seems to be valid on line 125 which says: } elsif ($do eq 'status') { but then on line 162 it says: if ($do eq 'status') { print "Unused\n"; exit 3; } which seems to imply "status" is unused. Could the status option be documented and simply check if the daemon is up or not? I see no need for it to check the config file.
Status now says "No $0 running" in the pidfile doesn't exist case.
