this sounds great.

what would you think of adding an option to allow the server to
connect to one (or more?) unix pipes for process restart instructions?
i'd love to add a nginx module which notices when a backend is
responding too slowly and can notify Unicorn to restart it. (this is
the killer feature of passenger phusion.)

a simple protocol where a single byte message encodes the index of the
backend that needs to be restarted would work i think (easy to
multiplex with multiple writer processes)
