Allow me to suggest that having to restart an application to see toolbar
changes a) is a really harsh restriction on the user; b) is contrary to
user expectation; and c) differs from how toolbar modification works in
every application I've ever tried it in on any platform.

I confirm that this change works.
This experience prompted me to batch-byte-compile ESS, which seems to
have worked, but it generated a bunch of warnings. Is it reasonable to
expect them to get cleaned up in a future version?
