It depends on which pool S is a subpool of.  If S is a subpool of the
thread pool for X, then X must live at least as long as S is intended to
live.  X could easily create S as a subpool of the global pool or some
other process-level pool, on the other hand, at which point S's lifetime
would not depend on the lifetime of X.
