> in development its very common to want to trash the data directory, stop karaf then start
again. Its kinda painful.
> it'd be good to do this in a single command.

> which would move the ./data directory somewhere (into an old directory, maybe numbered
so you've a history of logs etc) and then doing a System.exit(something) such that the shell
script knows its a restart, where the shell script could then restart the JVM again.
> I can imagine this being useful in distributed testing/production uses where you want
to basically restart a server from scratch so it might fetch new bundles on startup etc (without
worrying about old stuff being stuck in the JVM).
> I guess restarting is one thing - and restarting clean (with the data directory going)
is a secondary optional extra
