Question - Detecting disconnects/auto reconnect

Is there a plugin that will detect server disconnects and possibly auto-reconnect? I get periodic disconnects and haven't yet figured out the cause. In the meantime I'd like to stay online as much as possible, so auto-reconnecting would be super.

My current plan is to use EQBC disconnection announcements to trigger something, but I haven't done much research on this yet.

I think qarapace means if he disconnects from game - like a CTD - and another toon saw the toon disconnected from eqbc server - if there's a way he could auto relaunch that toon
That's it exactly. When my connection drops, I lose all connectivity, so I do see the EQBC disconnect. I'd like to detect that in some way, and kill/relaunch all eq processes (usually just one, say a trader or a toon in a PL camp or something). I was hoping there might be an MQ2 hook for disconnecting/deinitializing so I could write a plugin for this, but thought I'd check here with the MQ2 gods first.
