What I basically said in my email to David was that I could see having a
pool take in an option as to which SMS it should use.  I've said this
before a few weeks ago (probably when I first looked at the SMS code), 
but let me reiterate that suggestion.  Obviously, there would be a
default SMS that would be used, if one isn't provided when the pool is

I think that this allows the SMS code to be kept simple, while the pool 
code can be kept relatively similar to what it does now.

IMHO, using APR without something that implements cleanup routines (like
what the pool does now) is going to be troublesome to implement without
rearchitecting the guts of APR.

I'll shut up for a while on this.  -- justin
