From alpha5 there is the possibility of recovering from a crash, as the 
server saves its state from time to time. But, as something may be 
changed just before the crash it is not 100% guarantee that it will be 
exactly the same state. It limits the risks. 
From my experience (killing a lot of servers with ctrl-c), I never had a 
server that didn't want to restart after this kind of shutdown.
