We should probably have an AdaptivePool, too. This would be similar to
the no-limits pool except it would gradually shrink back to a sensible
size. This can be implemented in various ways -- e.g. by killing off 10%
of the pooled components over every 30 minute period, with the net
result that if there is a spike, it should get back to normal relatively
quickly. There are better algorithms out there, but you get the idea.
