    This would be something I would consider very worth-while, if it is
    possible. I'm no where near a good enough coder (yet?) to be able to write
    this myself, but a thought would be to have a simple boot-strap that held
    everything still while the change was done.
    Users would see a lag time in response while the change was done
    because I would think it'd basically have to be atomic (I can't see any
    other way...), but when running a production envirnment as I do that's
    greatly preferrable to having to reboot, which on some of the machines
    I use has to be planned out weeks ahead and takes months to accomplish
    unless the need is extremely great, ie: the system is about to fall flat
    on it's face. :)
