You should probably provide an internal API in HttpApplicationFactory
to add folders/files to the restart-on-change watch list and then
access it from other places as necessary. You don't need to provide any
means of removing the entries from the list, since a watched
file/folder removal should and will trigger application restart.

For this kind of change you must not restart the application, only
invalidate the cache entry of the type that "owns" the code behind.
Mono's ASP.NET uses a caching compiler which stores all the types
compiled from the parsed pages/controls in a cache. You would need to
modify the CachingCompiler class in order to add support for multiple
cache dependencies for each cached type (for 1.0 profile you need to
depend on the codebehind file named in the Src page attribute, for 2.0
profile the source named in the CodeFile attribute). I guess the reason
it isn't handled now is just that it wasn't seen as a very important
