As Stu describes it on #7595

The invalidation globs for pantsd (improved in #5567) can be manually configured to cover everything that is known to cause pantsd to need to restart. But many of the things that should trigger a restart are already known to pants. A partial list:

  1. The content of any configured pants.ini files (due to #7022)
  2. The pythonpath of pants itself (since changes to loose-source plugins mean the code that pantsd is running might have changed)

We should automatically include these values (and likely others!) in the values that we use for --invalidation-globs. In cases where the options values point to files that exist outside of the buildroot, we should consider logging a warning (unless that ends up being too noisy).

It would be good to add an integration test that touching a pants.ini file restarts the daemon: you can do that by creating an empty/temp file, asking pants to use it with --pants-config-files=$tmpfile, and then removing the file to trigger a shutdown.
