Not currently. I'm looking for a nice portable way to do file watching.

The Linux inotify system can apparently be used to send the -k
reconfigure command on FS changes in the config directory. Though I've
yet to see any working example and have not had the time myself to
experiment on it.

Patches and/or info welcome. This might be a good starter project if
anyone wants to dip their fingers into the Squid code.
