It can even be simpler than that. I did a little toy web framework
for my embedded Gumstixes and all I had to do was save the timestamp
of the script when first loaded, and thereafter just recheck the
timestamp. In this case, the 'server' was a fairly involved process
that wasn't as easy to 'just restart' as (say) Xavante, so being able
to change a script and then test it in the browser without restarting
was very useful.
