A pool of Digester instances isn't a good idea. Digester instances
aren't "reusable" as described in the documentation; see also the FAQ
entry about reusing instances:

And unfortunately I don't know of any way to cache the set of rules
generated from an xmlrules file. You can certainly read the xmlrules
file into memory as a string, and wrap that in an InputSource so that
the xmlrules parsing at least doesn't have to do file I/O.  However
beyond that I don't know of any performance optimisations available.
