I don't think the two-process architecture has any effect on it at all - all
your code is loaded and run in the kernel. You can restart the kernel from
the frontend, but then you lose everything in your namespace (like closing
IPython and starting it again).

Have a look at the code in IPython.lib.deepreload - I think it should be
possible to tweak the %run magic so that it replaces the
__builtin__.__import__ function before running code, and puts it back
