I'm sure you could figure something out... and in the case of both Org
and Gnus, they each provide reload/restart functions that promise to get
you a 90% clean slate :)

But I'm just a fair-weather tinkerer -- the issue has never annoyed me
enough to want to come up with another solution beyond restarting. It's
also the reason I never started using emacs as a daemon, attractive as
that sounds.
