Description of problem:
When the merge of the new presentation manager was done, the ability for it to
detect changed XSLT files & reload the templates was removed. This functionality
is crucial to developers because without it, every single XSL change requires
restarting the server. This literally destroys productivity, because each 'edit,
deploy, view' cycle now takes several minutes instead of a mere 30 seconds.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start the server & visit a page, eg /admin/
2. Make a change to the stylesheet for /admin
3. Run ant deploy
4. Visit the page again, /admin/
Actual Results: The change to the XSLT does not appear
Expected Results: The change to the XSLT is visible.

Fixed in perforce change 34575. I spent some time testing the change to show
a) doesn't change the current behavior at all if debugMode = false
b) supposing debugMode is on, only reloads when a file has been touched
It looks to be in good shape.
