Why not just use the support built into paste? If you use Paste to serve 
a WSGI application, you can just do:

$ paster serve --reload myprogram.ini

This is what things like Pylons, TurboGears (I think) and Repoze are 
doing, and you get it for free. I'm pretty sure Philipp already 
experimented with this somewhere, even.

paster serve --reload sure works on OS X and Windows, at least. ;-)
