Restarting shouldn't be necessary (as long as your systemclock is
monotonically going forward, or at least isn't going by in large steps,
occasional small steps of a few ms don't matter in practice), leafnode
will re-read the active files if either the group.info or the
local.groups file's mtime increases or the inode number changes (which
is, now that I'm writing it, actually a bug because it needs to check
the (dev,ino) pair rather than just ino).

On my end, there are no plans to remove automatic creation of directories.
