If HA is really important I guess one has a load-balancer in front of several
replicas. So restarting one after another results in zero downtime seen from
the clients.

Personally I still prefer to use static configuration and fully automated
installation/configuration (with puppet manifests pulled from SVN). That's
really easy with text files compared to dealing with dynamic configuration.
