Hi Noah, it depends on how much of a hack the fix should be.  I posted  
a fix to COUCHDB-398 that restarts just enough of the server to reset  
the stats counters and get the test suite to pass.  We should have a  
more in-depth discussion on what exactly POST /_restart should do in  

We don't necessarily need to hold up 0.9.1 while we discuss the  
behavior of /_restart, but I think it's very likely that the  
implementation of /_restart will change substantially in the near  
future.  I would go so far as to recommend that people not use the / 
_restart feature in 0.9.1 and below.  Best,
