Will the database get rid of the need to kill -HUP the switch daemon?

I'm working on a network wrapper interface for another project and I
just wanted to get a basic sense for what I functionality it will need
and how it will make use of the vswitches. Are there other changes
related to basic usage that come along with this new configuration
database management?
