It used to work OK, but it relies on the internal Rails reload
mechanism used for development mode.  It was intended to let you run
your rails app in production and then hit it to kick it over rather
than wait for a reload.

I'd say these days it's not needed and it risks running into changes in
how Rails operates.  Probably worth dropping.
