  Me and Jer just talked about this yesterday.  ;-P  Basically, Info/Query solves a WHOLE LOT of issues, including configuration, etc..  But the reload would still be needed in the case of certain variables that an admin may deem that are NOT setable from remote.  This would primary be due to security concerned (Aka, transport names, so I can't connect a transport, and redirect all ICQ/AOL traffic TO it, hence, intercepting it).  This would mean that cracking a server would mean more then just compromising an admin level account..
