The general idea is to reload an app when you know it needs to be
reloaded, not when it's accessed, so as to minimize delays as seen by
the users.  It's a basic principle of designing for performance.
However, there's nothing written in stone that says you can't do what
you want: go write the code and have a blast with it ;)  That's part
of the fun of open-source software...
