[Bro-Dev] broctl restart --clean

Just a thought, 

broctl restart --clean at present does operations in the following sequence: 

1) Stop running bro
2) clean up nodes
3) check configurations 
4) install new config 
5) start bro. 

If scripts are buggy, this would fail at step (3) and now I am debugging scripts while bro is not running. 

I think restart --clean should first check configurations (step 3) and then if success, move further or stop. 

buggy/typo scripts are preffered to be debugged while bro is running.
