It is impossible to simply reconnect all open connections/stream when
they die without support in the application for this (i.e. broken
timing, ...). If you application has been properly set up for
reconnecting reconnectng is supported.

Please note however, that I think the time spent on making clients
"reconnectable" is better spent on fixing the reasons why PA might
decide to die.
