Hi Kostas,

I recently talked with Bodo Vossen from MPI who has created this
functionality and made available:
https://bitbucket.org/Bodolski/galaxy-central-adding-tools

He added this functionality to the Admin page of Galaxy which allows to add
tools without restarting the server. Unfortunately I have not yet tested it
myself, but it seemed to work 'out-of-the-box'.

Cheers,
Jelle
