Is there a 'normal' way to restart the AppServer from within

I think you should call shouldRestart() instead of restart() -- only the
main thread can initiate the restart, and shouldRestart() asks it to do

I recall a discussion suggesting that the Auto Reloading app server should get rolled into AppServer.
We should consider this functionality at that time, if not before.  I think the terminology here is confusing.  I just ran into it myself.  "restart()" sounds like a command.  "shouldRestart()" could easily be interpreted as a question.
