[Dnsmasq-discuss] How to reload changes to /etc/dnsmasq.d/mydomain without restarting DNSMASQ

Is it possible to reload changes (e.g. new ip / DNS for mydomain) 
without restarting DNSMASQ?

If possible i'd like it to re-read the /etc/dnsmasq.d/mydomain file for 
changes (new ip's / DNS entries) without restarting DNSMASQ (and causing 
problems for my network users as DNS resolution will drop).

I've read that this doesn't seem to be possible due to the way DNSMASQ 
starts, but I can't confirm that.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks and Regards,
