segments can be added to searchservers without restarting the frontend

Hi Sami, Hi All,
I have a question regarding your change described in the changelog:

10. Added some features to DistributedSearch: new segments can be added
     to searchservers without restarting the frontend, defective search
     servers are not queried until tey come back online, watchdog keeps
     an eye for your searchservers and writes simple statistics.
     (Sami Siren, 20050407)

Do I understand it that segments can be added to searchserver without  
restarting tomcat, but a searchsever restart is necessary?
Wouldn't it be interesting to a have a thread in the searchserver  
that scans the segments folder for new segment/index folders and  
update the searchserver?

Thanks for any comments.
Stefan
