Okay.  The situation (real or imagined) I was leery of was not allocation
but pool destruction... what happens when you have a subpool of a
one-thread-at-a-time pool that was created in one thread and gets
destroyed in another pool, if the parent pool is still active in the other
thread somehow?  I don't have a specific case I can name where this would
happen, but it seems possible.

[I'm perfectly happy to be told I'm imagining things and this just isn't a
problem... if that's the case, great!]
