[nsp] 12.3T - a niiiiice feature :)

Ever try reloading a border router (like a 7200 or higher) that is in a
production environment.  It takes a while.  A "warm reload" would shave off
several minutes a reboot (my definition of reboot is power cycling the
device and waiting until all routes have re-converged to its state prior to
the power cycle).  During maintenance, this time savings could add up.
During a normal business day or a freak circumstance, when a reboot suddenly
seems the best option, this would help decrease downtime.

Agreed.  Nice feature

Why?  Reboots are for hardware changes...
