pbs is not a debugging tool

Well, what Apple says:

"Important: The pbs tool is for debugging purposes only. It does not have a guaranteed interface, and may even be removed in a future version of Mac OS X. You should not design any programs to depend on it."

They could be joshing, I suppose.

Running it manually is a debugging method. It's not exclusively a debugging tool, or it wouldn't be invoked automatically on every Mac. It's running on yours right now. All you're doing with this hint is restarting it.
