    @bgutjahr This all look good to me, except the unbounded default pool setting :D, for
reasons I mentioned above.  We have had people complaining that it grows out of control under
high load.  Which as I mentioned is the original reason for the change.   
    How about we add the setting to time out threads in the pool as shown in the link above
but keep the default the same.  Using a multiplier of the cores is a reasonably standard way
to calculate defaults and it's usually reflection on the system resource, but we could easily
change this, if there is a lot of objection.  This is also how Netty instantiates some of
it's thread pools.
    I wonder if there is a thread pool policy that could prevent the pool growing too large,
but not behave like a fixed pool.  Ideally we'd like to pool to grow organically, up to a
certain number.  I was unable to find an appropriate policy using ThreadPoolExecutor in the
 But perhaps there's another way to handle this?  Any suggestions?
