Hello everybody,

just an idea, are all databases reloaded when the reload request comes?
Would it be possible to reload only those that have changed since last
reload? Then it would be beneficial to have large main.* and smaller
daily.* files, and forking and loading in background would not be needed.

So the question is - what would be easier to code?
- reloading in background thread
- reloading limited to new files
