Yes of course.  It would be a separate create function, apr_pool_create_with_allocator
or something similar but less verbose, and certainly nearer apr_pool_create_ex.

calls with 3 NULL's at the end. Also the semantics get a little confusing in doing this at
apr_pool_create; is the apr_pool_t * allocated from the allocator_alloc_fn or via malloc()?


Surely, from the parent pool!  That's only a question in a top-level create.
