Perhaps it would be a good move to extract the file-watching behaviour from the part of Upstart that runs as PID 1, and put it in a separate daemon that can notify Upstart when it's time to reload a configuration file. That way, only the daemon would crash in this situation, and Upstart could restart it as it would any other daemon.

Although then you have the problem of the notification channel between the daemon and Upstart overflowing, i suppose.
