i usually have the daemon turned off when developing against the pants repo since it would need to be restarted almost every pants invocation anyway. it would also be neat to restart the daemon immediately whenever code is changed (not just the first time pants is run after code is changed)

but ftr: for things that the daemon watches, it does stop itself immediately
it won't start itself again until the next run though.
