Thanks David for your clarification. 
What do you exactly mean by reloading? Do you mean "/etc/init.d/liquidsoap restart"?

1. The purpose is to have multiple streams running. You can have
multiple streams from a single instance of liquidsoap (a single
script) but if (sets of) streams are separated it's more robust to
keep them in separated scripts (plus, you'll exploit multiple cores
better with several instances of liquidsoap).

2. Reloading is the way to go. You can setup a fallback in various
ways to limit the impact of reloading. There's also a new "fast
reload" command, on which Samuel might be able to comment.
