Shoes-off is an IRC bouncer built on top of RCIRC. So basically, it uses
RCIRC to connect to IRC servers and listen on a specific port for
clients. When a clients connect, it is as if it was connected to the IRC
servers. To do that, shoes-off "binds" RCIRC processes to a client
connection and it uses process-plist to store this kind of information.

However, when a RCIRC connection is restarted, AFAIK it just means that
a new connection is established. So, from shoes-off's POV, the previous
RCIRC process is dead, hence it can not continue to forward the messages
between the RCIRC connection and the client.

That's why I would like a way to be notified when a RCIRC process is
replaced so that shoes-off can update the connections information. But
to do that, I would probably need more that just a notification, I would
need the old and the new process.
