[Spread-users] Limitation for high availability systems

It is my understanding that it is necessary to restart the spread daemon
to take into account any modification of the configuration file.
For high availability systems, if we want to add an extra server (for 
due to higher traffic), it will be therefore necessary to stop all the 
spread daemons, thus interrupting the service.
That makes spread not yet perfect for high availability systems.
Is there a plan to allow dynamic addition of new spread daemons ?
in which timeframe ?
What modifications would be necessary ?
If it's not planned or easily done by someone not familiar with the internal 
architecture, would there be some workaround ?
