Geoff is correct. admin_member_chunksize is a list attribute and simply
changing a list attribute never requires a restart. Further, in this
case, we are dealing with CGIs, and the CGI scripts are always loaded
as a new process by the web server, so changes that affect only the
CGI scripts don't require a restart either.
