There's an easy solution:

Keep a table of the modification dates of the relevant modules. In your 
handler function, compare the modification dates you stored with the 
current ones, and if any differ call reload() on that module.

If you want an example, ask me and I can make one. But it shouldn't be 
too hard to do on your own.
