No, you do not need to restart dccd to change its whitelist, but
you do need to run `dbclean` or `dbclean -G`.
Something like `dbclean -Gi serverID` would do the trick.

`dccm -g` has no effect on `dccd -G` whitelists.  `dccm -g` only
affects what dccm does with whitelisted counts dccm receives from dccd.
`dccd -G` whitelists affect whether `dccd -G` says to embargo a message.

that's a good point.
