Besides restarting a mod-mono-server process, as I said, there's no way
to restart individual applications. This has to do with complicated
AppDomain unloading issues.

I don't think that's possible, not for caching in general. Cached
objects in memory can't stick around if the whole application is being

Well this is possible, as we know, except not automatic.
Pending the ability for applications to be unloaded/restarted, we could
add something that automatically restarts a mod-mono-server when
particular files are updated. (But note that this involves a policy
decision too, because you wouldn't necessarily want someone to be able
to restart everyone's applications just by recompiling.)

Okay, I'll think about how to do something like that.
