[Xmonad] Dynamically reloading Config

Is it possible to dynamically reload the Config?

In a previous thread dons mentioned mod-ctrl-shift-q which calls
'restart' which exec()s itself. However when I do that xmonad closes
and I'm back at my xdm prompt.

Maybe that has to do with my ~/.xsession:

xsetroot -gray                        &
Esetroot ~/pictures/lastlight1280.jpg &
firefox http://mail.google.com/mail &

What about using hs-plugins for dynamic configurations?
