That's right... and it's working just great. One thing I'd like to add,
and I'll send a patch to you soonish if you think it's worthwhile, is
the ability to specify a whole subtree to be reloaded: using ReloadModules
is fine but after a while adding modules to the list gets tedious. In most
cases I want to reload my application modules, and no others.

I volunteer to do that, since I've already played with the code and sent you
patches :-)
