Actually, how about replacing the three variables with a single
tri-state variable that indicates the progress into reload:

enum { BEFORE_RELOAD = -1, DURING_RELOAD = 0, AFTER_RELOAD = 1 } reload_status;

#define BEFORE_RELOAD_P() (reload_status < DURING_RELOAD)
#define DURING_RELOAD_P() (reload_status == DURING_RELOAD)
#define AFTER_RELOAD_P() (reload_status > DURING_RELOAD)

then no_new_pseudos becomes (!BEFORE_RELOAD_P ()), reload_in_progress
becomes DURING_RELOAD_P () and reload_completed becomes AFTER_RELOAD_P
(), and all conditions are equally simple to evaluate.

And then, if we ever need to distinguish between internal reload
stages, we just extend the enum, adjust the macros and introduce new
ones as needed.
