[Dnsmasq-discuss] Is there a way to run dnsmasq in safe mode (no-fail)?

I have recently been locked out of my remote router(s) because I made a typo on the dnsmasq config (e.g. as a syntax of dhcp-host, or similar), this resulted in dnsmasq unable to (re)start and exiting with a configuration parsing error something. My mistake indeed but... does it really have to crash the whole dnsmasq?

I know that the internal dnsmasq's tftp server supports already a safe mode to run via the tftp-no-fail

So could the whole dnsmasq have a no-fail feature e.g. just log+ignore the part of config not understood?
