  Yes to everything.. ;-P

  Just as etherx can load jserver dynamically in memory, jserver can in turn
(and does) load several 'modules' that tell it how to validate, route, etc. 
Right now, the only included module is mod_basic.  Now that we have a working,
sturdy server in 0.7, we can start to bang out the mod_sql, mod_ldap, etc,
modules that will extend jserver to authenticate any way it so chooses.

  And in answer to your last question, if you send a kill -1 to etherxd, it will
reload all config files, as well as resend them to the connected transports..
