It'd be nice to have some way to stop listen()ing, but keep serving the currently connected users until they all disappear. Maybe using an operator command, or by a signal (SIGHUP? SIGUSR1?).

This way, a daemon mode server can be upgraded without forcing every user to disconnect.

Milestone: 1.2.x

Mostly fixed in changeset:devel,404. It'd be nicer to have some kind of RESTART command some day where the daemons stay in touch and operator commands still work. This is more complicated though.
