[Twisted-Python] reload / restart best practices ?

I have a twisted application that seems to occasionally jam up. It dispatches a lot of work via DeferToThread, and in some instances it appears that the specific thread pool locks up ( haven't found out why yet ). I'm fairly certain that the problem is stemming from getting HTTP documents ( there's a web indexing component and 3 external api tools ).
An acceptable fix for now would be periodic restarts ( daily or even weekly would more than suffice at this point ).
Does anyone have a suggestion on how to best approach this ? I saw some old discussions about ideas for implementing graceful restarts via autoload, and other stuff. Because my application might be in mid-conversation with external APIs , I don't want to kill the process and respawn. I'd like them to finish , and shutdown/restart N seconds later ( assuming that I wouldn't be able to fully shutdown because of an issue with a locked thread ).
