IT DON'T RELOAD because of readonly /etc

"/usr/bin/traffic_ctl config reload" don't do anything beause of this 
"[Rollback::Rollback] Config file is read-only : ssl_multicert.config" 
bullshit and i am currently working to implement letsencrypt for 
hundrets of domains which means that at every point in time certificates 
can be changed and a reload is needed and HARD RESTART IS A NO-GO

why in the world is that broken-by-design not fixed after 5 years of 
complaining or at least a option called 
"proxy.config.disable_configuration_modification" not tested at all?

is it really that hard to create a basic systemd unit and set the OS to 
redonly which should be the case for every network service in 2017 and 


[root@proxy:~]$ cat records.config | grep configuration
# Main threads configuration (worker threads). Also see configurations 
for   #
# parent proxy configuration 
CONFIG proxy.config.disable_configuration_modification INT 1
CONFIG proxy.config.cluster.cluster_configuration STRING cluster.config
