Hold requests long enough for me to restart upstream?

Is there a particular reason you can't run a second instance of the
Jetty server on a different port?   This would allow you to restart one,
let Nginx failover to the second until the first comes back up, and then
restart the second.   As a bonus, you'd probably see a moderate increase
in performance since Nginx would load-balance them in normal operations.
