> If an AM wants to reconfigure itself or restart with new resources, there's 
> no way to do this without the active participation of a client.
> It can call System.exit and rely on YARN to restart it -but that counts as a 
> failure and may lose the entire app. furthermore, that doesn't allow the AM 
> to resize itself.
> A simple exit-code to be interpreted as restart-without-failure could handle 
> the first case; an explicit call to indicate restart, including potentially 
> new resource/label requirements, could be more reliabile, and certainly more 
> flexible.
