I curse the meaning it has... make_sub_pool will make a pool that has no
parent... which in every case I've seen it used has lead to a memory leak
on restart.  I removed this "feature" in apache-nspr.

Yup we all probably agree on that... the question becomes: do we do it in
1.3.x or do we do it in 2.0?  I wouldn't mind seeing it in apache-nspr... 
I wouldn't mind seeing apache-nspr as the basis for 2.0 work.  I haven't
heard any complaints about that concept... or maybe I'm just ignoring them

If enough folks agree that apache-nspr is the basis for 2.0 work then I
could commit it and the fun can start.  A game plan would be nice though

doesn't work -- you need to pass the pointer back, alloca memory is
destroyed on function exit.
