Of course rereading configuration file won't be compatible with chroot
(unless you place a copy of the configuration file/certificate/etc. inside
the chroot jail).
Another obvious problem I expect is the setuid option and binding ports
below 1024. 8-)
Rereading of the configuration file is on my TODO aka waiting-for-a-sponsor
