I agree.

The only thing I tried that didn't work was to add a IPv6 listener and to 
HUP the master process. The manpage for master reads (in my version):

       Cyrus-master rereads its configuration file when it receives a 
hangup signal, SIGHUP.   Services  and
       events  may be added, deleted or modified when the configuration 
file is reread.  Any active services
       removed from the configuration file will be allowed to run until 

>From that it isn't obvious that some class of changes to cyrus.conf 
apparently require a restart of the service. So I'm mainly asking for 
documentation fixes:

• clarify the allowed IPv6 address formats
• clarify that SIGHUP isn't enough for all (which?) config changes

Thanks, Sebastian´
