Restart Xfce4 session without logging out

I usually have multiple xfce sessions opened, when I made preference 
change in one of the sessions, I would restart other xfce sessions to 
re-read the changes.  I am sure others would use this for other reasons.

I also received an email from Lonni, indicated that XFCE3 has this 
feature but not in XFCE4.  I am sure there are lots of others miss this 
XFCE session restart feature too.  Does anyone know why this feature got 
removed from XFCE4?
