Do you manage to restart stunnel without breaking existing

Lately, I was looking for a signal which makes stunnel close the
listen()ing sockets only. A new stunnel instance could bind() to the
same local addresses then. However, I didn't find any. All signals a
handler is installed for seems to make stunnel exit() only.

A 'soft restart' seems to be a missing feature in stunnel.
