Oh, sorry I was thinking for development, not actually running the
server for production.  Okay, so you want it running, and then be
able to break into the process, edit a file and have it updated in the
running process.

I have not used edit.  I remember it being difficult, and it did not
matter enough to me that I was prepared to put the effort into
figuring out a solution.
