Cycling the server without killing the process

I would like to add the ability to cycle the server without killing the
process.  I think this would involve:


*	stopping the event loop
*	closing the sockets
*	shutting down the thread pool
*	clearing the event/packet queue
*	unloading the modules
*	freeing the configuration


I noticed that the SIGTERM shutdown appears to be orderly.  If I perform
that sequence and then perform the initialization sequence will there be
any tedious memory leaks? 


SIGHUP does a limited re-configure.  I'd like it to go all the way.  Can
anyone give a rough estimate for this?
