Blew away .../var/varnish/HOSTNAME/ -- broke varnishstat, how to recover?

We're using varnish for a public site, works beautifully and handled
getting slashdotted gracefully -- many thanks!
We built it with "zc.buildout" which creates .../parts/varnish/install/
var/varnish/FQDN/... and others. In a recent update, I accidentally
blew away the .../var/varnish/FQDN directory which contained a few
files that seem necessary for "varnishstat" and perhaps others to work.
Cannot open /usr/local/mastersite_buildout/parts/varnish/install/var/
varnish/FQDN/_.vsl: No such file or directory
Varnish continues to serve well, so I haven't restarted.
What's the recommended way to re-create this directory? I'm assuming
restarting Varnish will re-create it but want to be sure.
We have to fill out pounds of paperwork in order to take any outage on
a public server, no matter how small. Is there a way to restart
Varnish without any downtime -- to continue accepting but holding
connections until restarted, rather like Apache's "apachectl graceful"
does? Other ideas?
