It's the idea. 
Many people on a french board are interested and if we make a search on blenderartist or official forum we can see it's a recurring demand, because that would be terribly practical (need to reboot, more urgents works, need of cpu time and so on..) . But i'm not a developper and i hope simply that somebody will take into account this proposition.
