Currently, when a notebook detects that a kernel has died it does the following:

  1. Asks the user if they want to restart the kernel.
  2. If so, it kills the old kernel and starts a new one.

The more appropriate approach is the following:

  1. Always restart the kernel. A notebook is useless without a kernel and there are no situations where we shouldn't restart one.
  2. Notify the user that the kernel was restarted.
  3. Actually restart the kernel on the same ports rather than starting a new one.
