Reuse it.  

I think it would be cool if we could recreate it, but we are not there yet.  The
problem is that after a graceful restart, we don't know when the guys in third
world countries with 28.8Kb modems and noisy phone lines will be done
downloading the latest 4.6MB tomcat nightly build.  We can't free the scoreboard
until all of the old generation children go away, and that's complex to figure
out, so we reuse it.

That sounds bad.
