If I'm reading this correctly, you are saying that you have to restart the daemon if you want to add or remove listening IP addresses?  That's unfortunate since my use case was specifically to add (and remove) listening IPs without a restart.

Did the zero drop restart feature (as hinted at in github issue #6249) ever get implemented?  I didn't see anything like that in a very quick scan of the changelog.
