Loading dhcpd.conf changes without restarting the dhcpd daemon

Dear All,
I read https://www.isc.org/faq/item/81 and it says that reload
function is not supported by ISC dhcpd.
I am testing dhcp-4.2.3-P2 in Primary and Secondary setup.
I would like to know if there is any hack which will allow dhcpd.conf
changes to be loaded without actually stopping and restarting the
dhcpd ?

Appreciate your help.
