[Bug 1184376] Re: REST server crashes on "reopen"

OK, now I know why you added this flag. Removing it does not work, the
REST server still exits on reopen (I don't know how I missed this, it
used to work). But it's an exit, not a crash. In the logs I get "REST
server exiting", because the server gets an interrupted system call
error. This is very probably linked to http://bugs.python.org/issue7978.

In python upstream they suggested to simply restart the select call, so I'll prepare a patch to restart the serve_forever() call.
Can you think of a reason where we would really want the REST server to exit on an interrupted system call ?
