note if you see my other post about supporting all types of allocation
within one pool you'll see that it'd be cool for the different allocators
to have a void * that they can allocate within the pool...

and as far as usage for the void *, we need some sort of unique identifier
for each user of the pool.  ken suggested the module number method, but of
course that doesn't work within APR, because modules are an apache thing.
