Turns out that if we exec(), we'll need to write all the Listener
structs through a pipe from the old slapd to the new one. Otherwise,
if something has changed in DNS since the original slapd started,
daemon.c:slap_open_listener() can create Listener structs which do not
match the listener file descriptors.
I'm not going to bother doing that just yet, though I've been thinking I
may write some restart code soon. So I might just implement a simple
restart now which does not exec(), and just note in the documentation
that it might be changed later to exec().
