Agreed.  If it is possible to clean up the dependency tree amongst the 
tests however
then remerging the pool code would be desirable.

There are only a few with instrumentation.  The problem is that the class
ResourceLimitingPool used to be instrumented.  It is widely used in my code.
That class was copied as InstrumentedResourceLimitingPool and the original
had all of its instrumentation removed.   This is the naming change that 
I was
referring to.   If possible, I would like to get this worked out before 
a release.
Once that happens it gets more and more difficult to change back.

Ok, I will look into how that can be done.
