Humm, further investigation indicates that create_mutex
would needs a pool if this is going to work out.  The
CriticalSection needs space.  A cleanup is nobel.

Every thread should have pool, and create_thread should
take a pool to create that pool in.

So now I'm double frightened: NT semantics and the number
of Apache source lines this would effect.

I don't believe I have ever seen a need for topdown clean
up routine.  Debugger like activities often require a
first try exception handler, which is similar, but
different: "pull the fire alarm before doing anything
else" exception handlers.
