That's the theory, right. In practice, I have had one or two reports of
speedy_backend getting confused over configuration file changes, at least
http://bugs.debian.org/397609 . This is what I put in the Debian package:

 If you have problems getting the CGI to reload your configuration
 file after changes, you may have to kill lingering speedy_backend
 processes. See #397609. This should not happen, but I haven't found
 the bug yet. If you have a reproducible way to trigger this, 
 please send me your configuration files before and after the change.
