But what would it do, other than just re-connecting the
cli struct (and that's trivial to do, cli_chutdown, followed
by cli_initialise and cli_connect) ?
The library has *NO INFORMANTION* on what the app has
open, and doesn't keep any.
It's like requesting an ftp library module to re-connect
to a server under the covers and re-transfer any files that
were in process. It doesn't make much sense.
It's an APPLICATION problem, not a library one.
