Interesting. I do something like a restart in ECJ.
I have an outer loop of ECJ, and the evaluation of individuals consist of another run of ECJ.
When I find an ideal individual, I don't restart ECJ, but I repopulate the subpopulations. I don't reset the generations or something like that.

The restart capability in ECJ is important and potentially time-saving.
Can somebody explain in greater detail how it is used?  Has it been tested
in a practical situation?
