Description

The running server should

a) reload the torrc every x (e.g. 15, 30 or 60) minutes automatically or - my wish
b) reload it after a user defined interval

Why?
If you repeatedly change the Entry-/ExitNodes...

Sorry, the client of course. Or if the server is running in client-mode too.

Hm. This sounds like a controller issue to me. On Unix and OSX, you can hit Tor with a HUP signal to
make it reload its configuration. Everywhere, you can use the controller protocol to tell it to reload,
or to change Entry and Exit nodes immediately. If you really want, you could write a controller program to
do this for you.

I'm leaning towards "won't implement" on this one.

Sure, if I would understand how to access it via a controller.
