Never tried it out, at first glance it should be equivalent of
restarting a machine which was improperly shut down. I.e. works in
most cases, but occasionally goes fubar.

Actually, udpcasting a live machine could even lead to a worse
situation, as the different sectors do not even correspond to one
given moment in time (beginning of hard disks corresponds to an
earlyer state), and it's quite possible that the filesystem drivers
are less prepared with that kind of situation.
