may I suggest at least some kind of compatibility mode stays available? 
There are tons of components out there which are built for being pooled 
automagically (and clients that assume as much). Shutting this down 
completely means there's a huge range of existing components which won't 
be able to run out of the box inside merlin. I just experienced similar 
issues trying to port an application to type 3 (which cannot support 
this kind of pooling at all), and it was a *major* pain in the ***.

backwards compatibility is a bitch, but still a good idea :D
